You'd be okay to double the dose if you didn't have the GI side effects. If your body can tolerate it, you can actually take 4 pills at once.

On missing a dose, the doctor I used to work for told to take the missed dose when I remembered UNLESS it was close to the next dose and then just skip it. You should probably discuss this with your doctor, though.

First it would be best to talk to your doc about it, but in general doubling up on a dose wont hurt just remember that any side effects you have with a single dose might be amplified by taking double.

I'll say this, for me I do not take it with food and when I don't I find I do not have the side effects, or what side effects I do have are lessoned a great deal, so for me taking it with food is the worse thing (my endro knows this, doesn't like it, but as long as I take it and he see's results he's alright with me taking it without food).

I am currently taking 500mg 3x a day with minimal side effects (and trust me I'm not complaining). Every now and then, I forget to take a pill when I eat. Is it okay to double the dose at my next meal? Or should I just skip it? I hate eating a little something extra to just be able to take the pill especially if I'm full.

Starting over
