Doses are timed to keep the amount of drug in your system at an optimal level to do what the drug is intended to do--in the case of antibiotics, they weaken or kill bacteria. A single missed dose lets the level get too low but is correctable. ...Read more

I missed an amoxicillin pill after dental work. I read online that I should not take twice the dosage to make up for it. Is that so?
