    Default Does it exist?

    Hy there,

    does the following phrase exist?:

    You should had taken the medicine?

    or

    You should have taken the medicine?

    What are the differences?

    Thanks,

    Ovos

    The first sentence is not standard English. After a modal verb like "should", "will", "must", "might", etc., you need the basic form of the verb (the infinitive without "to").
