Good to the Second-Last Drop

Today I bought some echinacea throat drops as a preemptive strike against a sore throat I could feel coming on. I was training all morning at work, and wanted to make sure my voice could handle it.

The box says I can have up to a maximum of 18 drops a day.
The box also says it contains 19 drops.

Everyone who buys this particular brand is supposed to have the kind of self-control that can resist the last drop. There is no warning as to what will happen if I take the last one. What exactly are the consequences of an echinacea overdose? Will I become too healthy?
