If you miss a dose of spironolactone, take it as soon as you remember unless it is close to the time of day you usually take it. It is better to skip one dose than to take two doses close together.
Here are some good ways to remember to take your medicine every day:
- Set reminders or alarms on your cell phone or alarm clock
- 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!
