If you forget to take your dose of beta blocker, take it as soon as you remember. But don’t take two doses within six hours of each other. If it’s almost time to take your medicine, most doctors say to wait and take your next dose at the regular time. Do not take two doses of beta blocker at the same time. Talk to your doctor about making a plan for if you miss a dose.
Here are some good ways to remember to take your medicine every day:
- Set reminders or alarms on your cell phone
- Mark off the day in a calendar every time you take a dose
- Use a day-of-the-week pill box and put it where you can see it easily (be sure it is out of reach of any children)
- If you have a lot of pills to remember, download a medicine reminder tool onto your cell phone, tablet, or computer
If it’s too close, don’t take the dose!
