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

If you miss a dose of Ximino (minocycline), take it as soon as you remember, unless it's almost time for your next dose. In that case, skip the missed dose and take the next one on your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.

It's also important that you take the entire course your doctor prescribes of this antibiotic, which treats certain kinds of acne. Don't stop taking it, even if your acne gets better before you've finished all your medication.
