If you forget to take your dose of carvedilol, 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 carvedilol at the same time. Talk to your doctor about making a plan for if you miss a dose.
Carvedilol immediate-release tablets are taken twice a day. Carvedilol extended-release capsules are taken once a day. Try to take this medicine at the same time every day.
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!
