You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

Correct, missing the next scheduled dose is appropriate. Adverse effects from overdose of carbimazole (Vidalta) are uncommon but when they arise are usually transient and related to the gastrointestinal tract - inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea. It's more likely that you won't see any adverse effects at all. There's no need to induce emesis nor treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
