How Should Jantoven Be Stored?

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

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Jantoven as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as possible on the same day. However, do not take two doses on the same day or take a double dose. Be sure to keep track of any missed doses (perhaps on a calendar), as your healthcare provider will use this information when monitoring your response to the medication.
 
If you miss one or more doses, be sure to contact your healthcare provider for further instructions.
