Can I take double pills 3 days in a row?

I missed the first 4 days of my birth control pill, should I keep taking double pills each day until I catch up with my normal cycle? Or just take double pills the first time and then one each day and have my cycle shifted by a couple of days?

No, that's probably a bit much.  If you missed your pill for four days in a row, you'll probably spot soon and aren't safe right now.  Use back up birth control until your next cycle. Check with your doctor to be sure but would think four days is too much.
