If you forget to take your Forfivo XL dose as scheduled, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose. Because Forfivo XL should be taken in the morning, you may want to consider skipping a missed dose, instead of taking it later during the day; taking it later during the day might cause insomnia.
How Should This Medicine Be Stored?
Forfivo XL should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
The tablets come in just one strength: Forfivo XL 450 mg.
