Co-Gesic tablets should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep Co-Gesic and all other medications out of the reach of children. Because Co-Gesic is a highly desired drug of abuse, make sure to keep it in a safe place.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Co-Gesic?
Co-Gesic is often prescribed "as needed," which means that you do not need to take a dose if you do not feel pain. If you forget to take a dose of Co-Gesic and notice significant pain, take your missed dose right away. However, make sure to wait the recommended time before the next dose.
