What should I do if I miss a dose?

  • If you forget a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is nearer to the time of your next dose, skip the missed dose. Do not take two doses at the same time.
  • Do not repeat dose if vomiting occurs after dose has been administered, wait until the next scheduled dose. Contact the pharmacist or doctor if your child repeatedly misses doses due to vomiting, even with the administration of anti-vomiting medicine
