What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
If you do not take your Zonegran as scheduled, take your missed 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. Do not take a double dose. If you miss several doses, talk with your healthcare provider, as you may need to start back with a lower dosage.
While this medication is often effective and well tolerated, it does not work for everyone. It may also cause side effects. With so many different treatment options for epilepsy available, people should not settle for a treatment that is not effective enough for them or that causes bothersome side effects.
