What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you take ibandronate monthly and forget to take your dose, take the missed dose as soon as you remember (in the morning), as long as it is at least one week until your next scheduled dose. Then continue with your regular dosing schedule. However, if it is less than a week before your next tablet is due, simply skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule.
 
If you take it daily, just skip your missed dose. Do not take a double dose, and do not take ibandronate after the morning.
