What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Imipramine Hydrochloride?

When taking it for depression, if you do not take your imipramine as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if you usually take your dose at night, you may not want to make up the missed dose during the day, due to the risk of drowsiness. Also, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
 
When taking it for bedwetting, if your child misses a dose of imipramine, skip the missed dose and continue with the usual schedule. Do not make up for a missed bedtime dose during the day.
