What are the effects of taking two capsules of Livolin instead of the prescribed one?

My brother was diagnosed with acute hepatitis and Livolin was prescribed as part of his medication. However contrary to the doctor s prescription, he has been taking 2 capsules per day instead of 1 capsule per day, what are the likely effects of this? Thank you

Hello,

Some of the side effects that your brother might have are constipation, diarrhea, or upset stomach. These effects are usually temporary and may disappear as your body adjusts to the medication.

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