Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

If you took just one time a second dose there is nothing to be worried about it.
If you have symptoms like :
-vomiting,
-feeling exhausted or short of breath,
-blurred vision,
-watery eyes,
-trouble walking, and
blood in your stools or vomit.
you should consult doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
