... 8 mg. I don't want to get sick from taking too much . Is 16 mg too much
No, dont take a second one. You could get respiratory depression if you did already take one. This is how people overdose. You should wait until your next dose is due since you are unsure. Have you thought of using a mediset? (one of the little boxes with the days of the week?) I put my medications in their boxes for each day and for morning, noon and night. Once I take them I lift the lid and leave it open (plus I can see the box is empty) and this way I know at a glance whether or not I took my meds. If I left them in the bottles and tried to remember I would never have it straight! With "as needed" medications, I know I am allowed up to four "as needed" doses a day so I can put 4 tabs in each days box and I can know at a glance how many I have taken and how many doses I have left or the day. This really helps me remember what I have taken and if I have taken the meds.
