Call Dr - ask/inform: Definitely call your doctor to ask or inform them. You dose is low, so it will probably not be dangerous, but try to avoid any more until the next due dosage until you contact them. Be careful w/ what you do once you've taken another - i.e., no driving. In extreme cases 100mg are used - don't worry. Just be careful and call!
