It is important to take the medications precisely at the scheduled times. If you miss a dose of Paxil, your doctor will likely recommend that you take it as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose and you are not sure whether or not to skip or wait out the missed one, then waiting may be more advisable. This decision will depend on how much time has passed since your last dose of this medication (weeks) and whether or not any side effects have occurred recently (hours). It is always advised to consult with your doctor before deciding what course of action would be best for you personally based on these factors!
