What should I do if I miss a dose of escitalopram?

Don't worry, missing a dose of escitalopram won't cause any problems. You can simply take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Your doctor has probably instructed you to take escitalopram once a day. If you miss an entire day, skip the missed dose. Never take two doses of this medication to make up for one you missed. Taking escitalopram around the same time every day can help you avoid missing doses.
