    You should contact your doctor immediately if you forget to inject a dose of heparin. Do not double your next dose, as this can increase your risk of bleeding. Skip the missed dose and stay on schedule with your next dose. Keep a record of any and all missed doses to show your doctor the next time you go in for a checkup.
