Unfortunately I can not answer this question, because I do not know what her blood pressure values look like. You will have to go back and confirm. Maybe take the 1 4x per day in the meantime and monitor het BP at home. Aim 138/85 max. It is urgent, because her health as well as the baby`s health is at stake.
