What happens if I miss a dose of amikacin?

You will most likely receive amikacin in the hospital, so missing a dose will be unusual, and if it happens the nurses will tell the doctor. If you administer it at home and miss a dose of amikacin, administer a dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is close in time to the next dose, do not take the dose that you missed and move on to your next scheduled dose without doubling the doses. Inform your doctor of the missed dose.
