What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Solaraze Gel?
If you forget to take your dose, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, simply skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose of the medication.
Solaraze Gel should be stored at room temperature (be sure to avoid freezing it). Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children and pets.
Solaraze Gel comes in one strength -- 3 percent (30 mg of diclofenac sodium per gram of gel).
