Accidentally taken too much Levo' 2 days in a row - repercussions?


Hi all,

I somehow managed to take two 50mg Levo' tablets (Sat & Sun morning); the only reason I know is because my other half remembers me waking up in the middle of the night on each occasion and hearing the unmistakable sound of a fizzy water bottle opening and the crunch of a plastic packet - the Levo'. I then woke up around 6 am and did the same thing. I have absolutely no memory of waking up in the middle of the night and was only alerted to it because other half mentioned it on Sunday.

I have taken steps to try and stop that from happening again: keeping the whole packet on my bedside table is obviously a no-go from here on, and perhaps a pill dispenser might be beneficial!

This morning I began my newly prescribed 75mg dose, ('just the once') and was just wondering if I am likely to have any side effects in the next few days from taking too much.

Takes six weeks to be fully processed by the body. And, by then, it will just be blended in with your normal dose. I doubt you'll notice any difference at all. :)

Cool! Would have felt really embarrassed calling NHS direct with this one! (-;

Not sure they would have known! lol




I have read that we can take a whole week's dose without problems.
