How Should Fluvastatin Be Stored?

Fluvastatin should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture. Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.

If you do not take your fluvastatin as scheduled, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. If it is almost time for your next scheduled dose, skip the one you forgot and take your next dose instead. Do not take a double dose.
