So I'm kinda freaking out right now. I take two 240mg pills a day. One at 9am and the second 9pm. At around 11:40ish I accidentally took another pill. I had meant to take my other medicine. Has anyone ever done this before? Any did effects? Should I be very concern or am I freaking out over nothing? Read More
