Mistakes with meds. Are double doses dangerous?
I am not sure but my partner may have double dosed last night. She was drinking last night. She may have taken her meds twice by mistake. I looked at her pill box and she seems to have taken her night meds twice. I immediately checked her breathing because she is still sleeping. She is fine and in a deep sleep. Sometimes she drops her meds on the floor or gets them wet and needs to take the next night's meds, and so I am not all that sure she double dosed. She should sleep usually to 11:00 AM. But usually she wakes up to void sometime early in the morning. I am fairly sure we don't need to call emergency. I will make a point of asking our doctor about the dangers of double dosing for her. I already know my own meds are not particularly dangerous at double doses.
