If I forget to take my warfarin on Monday, can I take two pills on Tuesday?

If you miss a dose of warfarin but don't remember it until the next day, don't take a double dose that day to make up for the missed dose the day before. Tell your doctor if you miss your dose of warfarin. If you forget to take your warfarin but remember it later that same day, you should take the missed dose as soon as you remember it.
