How Should It Be Stored?

Depakene should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Store the capsules and syrup in airtight containers.
Keep Depakene and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Depakene?

If you do not take your Depakene 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. Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you miss any of your Depakene doses, as this information may be helpful in adjusting your dosage.
