So, I know 'dose of your own medicine' is an older version of 'taste of your own medicine'; but which one is widely used nowadays? Are both of them correct, or did people stop saying 'dose of your own medicine'?


1 Answer 1


I had not heard 'dose of your own medicine' but I can believe it was used. Taste of your own medicine is common nowadays. I think 'taste' may have been more common since the taste is usually the worst part of medicine.
