Most doctors recommend that if you forget to take your dose of amlodipine, take it as soon as you remember. However, if there are less than 12 hours left until your next dose, most doctors recommend waiting and taking your next dose at the regular time. Do not take two doses of amlodipine at the same time. Talk to your doctor about what to do if you miss a dose.
Try and take amlodipine at the same time every day. Amlodipine is taken once a day. Talk to your doctor about ways to remember to take your pill every day. Reminders or alarms on your cell phone are a good idea. You can even just mark off the day on your calendar every time you take a dose. There are also reminder tools available online.
If it's too close, don't take the dose!
