What should I do if I miss a dose of Synalgos-DC?

Synalgos-DC (dihydrocodeine, aspirin, caffeine) is usually taken as needed and not on a regular dosing schedule, so you can't really miss a dose unless your doctor has told you to take it regularly. If that's the case, take the missed dose as soon as you remember, unless it's almost time for your next dose. If it is, skip the missed dose and take the next one at the regular time. Do not take a double dose of this prescription pain reliever.
