What happens if I miss a dose of clozapine?

You should take your missed dose of clozapine as soon as you remember. If it is already close to the time of your next scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your next dose as usual. If it has been more than two days, contact your doctor. You may need to restart the medication at a lower dosage. Do not double dose.
