What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
If you do not take your Dexedrine as scheduled, take your next dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. If you do not remember until late in the evening, skip the dose. Taking the medication late in the evening can cause trouble sleeping at night. Do not take a double dose.
