In brief: Check BP frequently

If below 100 mm of Hg ,drink plenty of fluids,keep recumbent position for at least 8-12 Hrs.
if symptomatic or concerned go to ER.

In brief: Medication error

High bp medicines lower blood pressure but their effect wears off after at most a day if you don't keep taking more after one dose.
IF you took a bunch of pills you should go to the ER and be checked and perhaps treated.

In brief: You should be fine

One dose of a blood pressure medication is not likely to cause a problem, even if you don't have high blood pressure.
However, if you are taking other medications it would be a good idea to call your physician to make sure that the blood pressure medication does not interact with your other medications.
