What if I miss a dose of estradiol acetate?

If you forget about a dose of estradiol acetate, it's okay to take it as soon as you remember. If you take one dose a day and realize that you missed an entire day, skip the missed dose. Never take a double dose of estradiol acetate to make up for one you missed. Taking estradiol acetate at the same time every day may help you to avoid missed doses.
