However, it is advised to take it at the same time each day as this helps to maintain a consistent level of medicine in the body.

If you have missed a dose, take it as soon as you remember it. You should never skip any doses and try to finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. It is important that this medication is not stopped suddenly without talking to your doctor as it can result in confusion, stiff muscles and a high fever.
