Depends on details: There's no strict rule about how to do this. Also, it depends on the illness, the patient, the drug dose, etc... Sometimes, especially milder cases, a patient might not need to "catch up." Other times, such as in bad asthma attacks, the doctor may want the patient to "catch up." A lot of times, people just do an "in between," such as taking 1 of the 2 missed pills and ignoring the other one.
