Do not take any more: You have taken too much too often. This should not be taken more than once a day. Your side effects are due to this being taken too close to your previous dose. You should stop taking it and see your Dr. soon, like tomorrow, or soon after, as you have taken this drug for a week already and he/she should be informed about this and this latest issue so you can be treated correctly. Best of luck.

Like I said, do not take it again and see your doctor as soon as you can. Good luck.
