What happens if I miss a dose of Phenytek?

Phenytek (phenytoin) is usually taken only once a day. It is very important to take Phenytek regularly at about the same time every day. If you forget your dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it's almost time for your next capsule, however, simply skip the missed dose and take your regular dose on schedule. Don't take a double dose to make up for the one you missed.
