What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Advicor?

If you do not take your Advicor dose as scheduled, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. If it is almost time for your next scheduled dose, skip the one you forgot and take your next dose instead. Do not take a double dose.
