Can I miss a dose of aluminum hydroxide-magnesium hydroxide?

If you miss your regular dose of aluminum hydroxide-magnesium hydroxide, then take one as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and just take the next dose according to schedule. Never take a double dose of aluminum hydroxide-magnesium hydroxide to make up for a missed dose. Try to take it at the same time every day, as this will help to keep you on schedule.
