Ive just accidentally at 12.45 am Wednesday, taken my morning

Customer Question

I've just accidentally at 12.45 am Wednesday, taken my morning dose of Levothyroxide 125mg and Bisoprolol 2.5mg, I wasn't concentrating on what I was doing and opened the wrong pillbox.
My previous dose was taken at 10.15 am Tuesday morning.

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

you took both?

Dr. David :

the levothyroxine and bisoprolol?

Dr. David :

or just an extra dose of levothyroxine?

Customer:

Yes, both the thyroxine and the bisoprolol, they are in the same sectioned pillbox

Customer:

I took both

Dr. David :

you should be fine even if you took both.

Dr. David :

I would just go back to your regular schedule dosing tomorrow.

Dr. David :

don't try to skip doses tomorrow

Dr. David :

because that can just cause more confusion

Dr. David :

these medications are safe enough that if you took an extra dose in a day, you will be fine.

Customer:

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX I would be, but needed to check, I think I'll take the next dose a bit later in the day, just to be on the safe side

Dr. David :

ok.

Dr. David :

good luck

Dr. David :

Dr. David :
