==If one's in doubt if one made a bracha==
# If one is in doubt whether one can make a Bracha the general rule is that one shouldn’t make the Bracha. <Ref>S”A 209:3, Kitzur S"A Shulchan Aruch 6:6 </ref>
# If one is in doubt whether one made a [[Bracha Rishona]] or not, one may not make the Bracha, rather it’s permissible to eat without a Bracha because of [[Safek Brachot LeHakel]]. <Ref>S”A in 167:9 and 209:3 writes clearly that if one is in doubt whether one made a Bracha one doesn’t not go back and say it except for [[Birkat HaMazon]]. Mishna Brurah 167:49 adds that it’s forbidden to make a Bracha in a case whether there’s a doubt. </ref>
# If there’s a doubt whether one interrupted his eating (with a [[Hesech Hadaat]]) one shouldn’t make another Bracha and it’s permissible to continue eating. <Ref> VeZot HaBracha (beginning of chapter 10, pg 87) </ref>
## Some say to read the פסוק of Vayivarech David until the words MeOlam VeAd Olam and then conclude the Bracha according to the appropriate ending. <Ref> Halichot Shlomo (end of chapter 22) </ref>
==Bracha Levatala==
# One should be very careful not to say a Bracha Levatala, a Bracha in vain, or cause oneself to make a Bracha Sheina Tzaricha, an unnecessary Bracha. If one said a Bracha Levatala or say Hashem's name in vain, one should say "Baruch Shem Kavod Malchuto LeOlam VaEd". <ref>Kitzur S"A Shulchan Aruch 6:4</ref># If after saying Baruch Atta Hashem one realizes that one shouldn't say that Bracha, one should conclude with the words "Lamdeni Chukecha", which is a pasuk in Tehillim and the Bracha isn't Levatala.<ref>Kitzur S"A Shulchan Aruch 6:4</ref># If one already said Elokey and didn't say the last syllable, Nu, then one should conclude with the words " Yisrael Avinu MeOlam VeAd Olam", however, in this case one should also say Baruch Shem afterwards.<ref>Kitzur S"A Shulchan Aruch 6:4</ref>
# If one recited a [[Bracha Rishona]] while holding a specific food and it fell on the floor (rendering it inedible) before one has the chance to take a bit from it, it depends on the situation as to whether one's original bracha was invalid and a new bracha is necessary if one wants to eat food of the same kind.
## If one intended not to include any other food with that Bracha, one's original bracha is a Bracha Levatala. In such a case, one should recite Baruch Shem Kavod Malchuto LeOlam VaEd. <ref>S"A Shulchan Aruch and Rama 206:6</ref>
## If one intended to include other food in one's bracha, then even if that food is somewhere else, one's original bracha is valid.<Ref>Rama 206:6, Mishna Brurah 206:26</ref>
## If one didn't specifically mean to include or exclude other food that was in front of him from his bracha, one's original bracha is valid.<ref>Mishna Brurah 206:26 writes that if one didn't specifically intend to include or exclude any food one had in front of him, then if the food which one's holding falls, one should not recite a new bracha because of [[Safek Brachot LeHakel]]</ref>
