Hello and thanks for your question! You're speaking with Dr. Bridget. I appreciate your patience as I review your question and prepare my response.

It is for poison ivy
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is 3 tablets a day for 3 days, then 2 for 2 days, then 1. It just didn't say to spread them out or anything.

Thanks for clarifying.

That is not a problem that you took all 3 at once. It is still within the acceptable dosage range and will not reduce the effectiveness of your regimen.

Just resume the normal schedule for the next days dosing.

Please let me know if you have any further questions. I am happy to help.
