Store the capsules at room temperature, in their original blister packaging. Wait to remove a capsule until just before you are ready to use it. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
What If I Forget a Dose?
If you do not use your Arcapta as scheduled, take it as soon as you remember. However, taking two doses too close together can increase the risk for side effects. Never take two doses of Arcapta within the same 24-hour period.
This medication comes in a pack with one Neohaler and 30 capsules of the medication (each capsule contains 75 mcg of Arcapta).
