Keep Eskalith 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 Eskalith 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. Make sure to tell your healthcare provider if you miss any doses, especially if the level of Eskalith in your blood is being monitored.
