What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

The manufacturer of vigabatrin does not provide any recommendations for what to do about missed doses, other than to discuss it with your healthcare provider. If you forget to take your dose, it is probably best to take it as soon as you remember, unless it is almost time for your next dose. In this case, simply skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
 
Especially when treating babies, it is a good idea to have a plan for what to do about missed doses or doses that have been spit up, before your child even starts taking the medication. Make sure to discuss this with your healthcare provider.
