How Should Stagesic Be Stored?

Stagesic capsules should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep Stagesic and all other medications out of the reach of children. Because Stagesic 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 Stagesic?

Stagesic is often prescribed "as needed," which means you do not need to take a dose if you do not feel pain. If you forget to take a dose of Stagesic and notice significant pain, take your missed dose right away. However, make sure to wait the recommended time before the next dose.
