From my tests, it shouldn't matter whether you trigger u.addEvent() multiple times for the same event unless you're setting a numeric event.
e.g. if I trigger u.addEvent("event10"); 8 times then I'll still only fire one event10 when the call eventually fires (http://note.io/19To8Ou).
However, if you were setting numeric events then you might have an issue:
e.g. if I trigger u.addEvent("event10=100.00"); and then u.addEvent("event10=200.00"); then I'll get two event10s set with different values (http://note.io/1Iy4EtX) although I do wonder whether SiteCatalyst will handle this for you (possibly not)
One way you could do this is to loop through the variable b.sc_events to see what is set and then don't set it if it is already set (or delete the old value and then use u.addEvent to set a new value):
Hopefully, this should help?

Hi Roshan, thank you for your support.
Probably I faced to duplicate event (no-numeric) when both u.addEvent and data-mapping work on the same tracking call. Anyway, I'm wondering if I can check whether or not an event is placed into the server call, before I call u.addEvent...

Apologies for the delay, you can check b.sc_events to see what events have been stacked so far by u.addEvent() but if you have any normal mappings in Tealium to trigger events I'm afraid you won't be able to see these.
I'm not sure I understand the purpose of checking though - if it is already set then setting it again wouldn't have any adverse effect as it would just set it again).
Could you confirm?

thanks for the hit on b.sc_events
I'm turning from data mapping to u.addEvent() method because I'm need to use a custom and more advanced method to get tracking of events, so sometimes happens that I have both the previous and the new method on the same page, so for instance, "cart-to-add" is fired twice instead of once.
Anyway, thanks for your support.

That's strange Jarno - I can't replicate that. Could you confirm that you're seeing 'scAdd' firing twice in the same call? Also, could you confirm the version of the SiteCatalyst tag you are using and the account/profile and a URL to test?
