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

Riomet is meant to be taken with meals. If you begin a meal and realize while still eating that you've forgotten your dose of Riomet, go ahead and take it. If you realize between meals that you've forgotten to take Riomet, wait until it's time to eat again before taking your next dose.

Don't take more than one dose at a time to make up for missed doses, and remember to monitor your blood sugar levels as directed to make sure they stay within a healthy range.
