What should I do if I miss a dose of irbesartan and hydrochlorothiazide?

If you forget to take a dose of irbesartan and hydrochlorothiazide, a combination pill to treat high blood pressure, take the missed dose as soon as you can. However, if the time for your next dose is near, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose of irbesartan and hydrochlorothiazide to try to make up for a missed one.
