I accidentally took 2 antibiotics instead of 3?

I was perscribed clindamyacin THURSDAY night for a partially erupted wisdom took that is causing infection in my mouth. 

It was prescribed to be taken once every 8 hours but unfortunately I've been taking it every 12 hours. 

I didn't realize it because I've been in a daze and distracted with my kids and working remotely. 

Am I totally screwed or is it going to be alright? I took one this morning at 8am, and realized I ****** up at 6pm, took another, and am going to take another tonight at 1am.

    No worries.  Just continue at the normal dosage until you run out.

    More than likely you will be fine, you should go to the three schedule and you just may need to be treated a bit longer you can confer with the dentist and see if he wants to increase the length of time or re check you to see of the problem is resolved
