What should I do if I forget a dose?

If you are taking prochlorperazine for nausea and vomiting, take the missed dose as soon as possible, if it is needed, and then wait at least 4 hours before taking another dose.

If you are taking prochlorperazine once a day for any other condition, take the missed dose as soon as you remember, then go back to your regular schedule the next day. If you do not remember until the next day, skip the dose you missed and take only the dose regularly scheduled for that day. It is strongly advised never to take a double dose of this medication.

On the other hand, if you are taking prochlorperazine several times a day for a condition other than nausea and vomiting, take the missed dose within 1 hour of its regular time. If more than 1 hour has passed, then skip the missed dose and take only your next regularly scheduled dose. Do not take a double dose.
