How Should Maxzide Be Stored?

It should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should be kept in an airtight container.
Keep Maxzide 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 Maxzide as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next scheduled dose, skip the missed one and continue with normal dosing. Do not take a double dose.
