Hello, welcome to healthcaremagic. You can take this tablet within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. In case you have vomiting within half hour of taking medicine you are supposed to take the tablet again. You should read the instructions on the tablet packet. Wish you good health.

you can have it before 72 hrs. so you can take it as single dose.
