Storage Methods

Paliperidone should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The medication should be stored in an airtight container.
Keep paliperidone and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your paliperidone tablets as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. 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.
If you are late for a dose of long-acting paliperidone injection, contact your healthcare provider right away.
