I have a cold, which I have treated with Zicam Oral Mist since

This answer was rated:

I have a cold, which I have treated with Zicam Oral Mist since my first symptom (post-nasal drip) on Wednesday. I've been good about taking it every three hours, except today when I took a dose after lunch, then forgot and drank some water even though it had only been ten minutes since my last dose and I knew I was supposed to wait to eat or drink for fifteen.

I gave myself another three sprays in my mouth, then got worried that maybe I'd overdosed. I can still smell and taste, so that's okay, but should I skip my next dose in three hours (and wait six) just in case?
