The antonyms for over-dosage are under-dosage, suboptimal dose or insufficient dose. These words describe a low or inadequate amount of medicine or drug taken. Under-dosage can result in the failure of the therapy or medication to provide the intended effect, leading to a prolonged or worsened illness.

Always consult the healthcare provider or pharmacist for the correct dosage instructions.
