So, what would be a complete curve?

yes they can but its rare and i think there are other medical issues that maybe the need for a higher dose

the key is not going past a dose thats needed if that happens it can create allot problems thats why we do complete curves and dose adjustments are based on the lowest number in that curve

Tonyr gives a good explanation of what a curve is . some even do 24 hour curves
