View Full Version : Missing doses :S

04-15-2009, 12:53 PM
Due to me being particularly ditzy at the moment, I've succesfully run out of my plaquenil :S I took my repeat prescription in yesterday and they said it will be ready tomorrow, so I will have missed 3 tablets :S Does anyone know if this will cause any issues in the long run or should I be fine?

I don't know, I've been out of my medication for a week now, so I'd like to know. I'm sure it's not good. I'm waiting for my plaquenil to come in the mail.:wideeyed:

I've missed mine for a while, then I was dealing with mail order. I didn't have any problems. But you might want to check with your Doctor to be sure!!!

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. Since you've missed three doses, I would suggest that you contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Best of Luck

Have you tried Tylenol or anti inflammatory? This may help.
