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

If you are using the medication regularly and you miss a dose of Avinza, take it as soon as you can. If it's already close to the time for you to take your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your medication on your usual schedule.  Do not try to make up for a missed dose by doubling-up on your medication. If you are ever unsure of what to do about a missed dose, call your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
