How Should This Medicine Be Stored?

Viokace should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children and pets. Always keep the lid on the bottle to prevent damage to the tablets from moisture in the air.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you forget a dose of Viokace, simply skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule (taking it at your next meal). Do not take a double dose. If you skip a meal, you should also skip the dose that should have accompanied that meal.
