I don't think it would hurt to go back to whatever amount of drops you're supposed to be at. If it's 5 then continue there and start adding more drops day by day. The reason for the steady increase in drops is to make sure you have no adverse reactions to the tinsture. You can continue on with the 10 drops for the whole 2 weeks if you are afraid. I make mistakes too with drops we're all prone to mistakes but I go all the way to 20 each time.
