In the US, prescription drugs seem to come with a facts insert, but much of the text is identical, either in form or substance, with every other drug insert I’ve seen. Practically every drug tells you that if you miss a dose, you should take it as soon as you remember, but that if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the next one, and that one should not take a double dose. I can’t remember EVER seeing an insert where this was not the case.
Are there any drugs where double-dosing is ok, or recommended? I.e. if you are supposed to take it twice a day, once around breakfast, and once at bedtime, and you forget the breakfast dose, so you take two doses at bedtime.
If not, why?
