What if I forget a dose of acetaminophen-butalbital-caffeine?

Acetaminophen-butalbital-caffeine is taken only as needed for migraine headache pain. If you forget to take a dose of acetaminophen-butalbital-caffeine and you are still experiencing pain, you can take another dose as soon as you remember as long as it has been at least four hours since your last dose. Never take a double dose of acetaminophen-butalbital-caffeine to make up for a missed dose. Do not take more than six tablets in a 24-hour time period.
