What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Diflucan?

Usually, this is not an issue, since Diflucan is most often taken as a single dose. However, the medication is sometimes taken for several doses. If you forget to take your dose, take the missed one as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, simply skip the one you missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Never take a double dose.
