What happens if I miss a dose of sodium chloride?

If you miss a dose of sodium chloride, take the missed dose as soon as you can. If you don't remember you missed it until it's time to take your next dose, skip the dose you missed. Don't take extra medication or double up on doses - simply continue to take the medication according to directions. Some types of sodium chloride are only taken as needed, so you won't need to worry about "skipping" a dose. If you're concerned about missing a dose of sodium chloride, talk to your doctor.
