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

If you miss a dose of Microzide (hydrochlorothiazide), take it as soon as you remember, unless it is nearly time for your next dose. In that case, skip the missed dose and take the medicine at your regular time. Do not take a double dose to make up for the one you missed.

Microzide is a diuretic, or water pill, prescribed to reduce high blood pressure and to reduce fluid retention. Taking too much can cause serious problems. If you have missed a dose and have questions, call your doctor.
