I am trying to understand the exact meaning of dose.
A dose means a portion or quantity but then saying take 5mil is not a dose but a precise quantity.
A dose is a rough estimation and can be anything between 1 to xmil depending on who is doing what.
Is the term dose already suggesting the ''too much'' until the doctor gives the right amount in mils
To overdose does not make sense because by saying dose one is already suggesting it might be too much?!
as in the google definition:
Could the term ''dozy'' come from dosage and means drowsy. The word dose is in the word drowsy.''Administer a dose to (a person or animal): "he dosed himself with vitamins''
The opposite of overdose should be underdose but then it can't be because there is no concept of underdosing?!
