What happens if I miss a dose of Carbatrol?

It is important to try not to miss any doses for the drug to provide its maximum benefit, but if you do miss a dose, you should take that dose as soon as you can. However, if your next dose is coming up soon, do not take two doses; simply skip the dose you missed and take your next dose in the schedule. You should keep taking Carbatrol on your original dosing schedule even if you do miss a dose.
