What happens if I miss a dose of Exelon?

If you miss a dose of Exelon, take it immediately when you remember it. Do not take the missed dose if it is almost time to take your next scheduled dose, though. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. To avoid an overdose, never double your dose to make up for a missed dose.
