The term "over dosed" has a negative connotation and refers to taking too much medication or drugs. The antonyms for "over dosed" are "under dosed" or "properly dosed." Under dosing occurs when a patient takes less medication than prescribed or needed, which can result in inadequate treatment or ineffective outcomes. Proper dosing, on the other hand, refers to taking the correct amount of medication or drugs as recommended by a healthcare provider. Proper dosing is important to ensure safe and effective treatment and to avoid any harmful or adverse effects that can result from over dosing or under dosing.
