How Should It Be Stored?

The medication should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture or heat. Cardura tablets should be kept in an airtight container.
Keep Cardura and all medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Cardura as scheduled, take your next 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.
If you miss several doses of Cardura in a row, contact your healthcare provider before restarting it, as you will likely need to restart at a lower dose to prevent side effects.
