Generally speaking, if you're giving the medication twice a day, at the 12 hour point, the effective blood level will be lower than what is therapeutically needed.  There may still be some of the original dosage remaining but it won't be very much.  That's why the next dosage is necessary in order to keep the blood level of the medicine where it needs to be.
