If the child misses a dose of Slenyto®, it could be taken before they go to sleep that night.
Recommended starting dose of Slenyto® is 2mg

After at least 3 months of treatment, the physician should evaluate Slenyto® treatment effect.
The patient should be monitored at regular intervals (at least every 6 months) to check that Slenyto® is still the most appropriate treatment.
Doctor may consider stopping if no clinically relevant treatment effect is seen. If a lower treatment effect is seen after titration to a higher dose, the prescriber should first consider a down-titration to a lower dose before deciding on a complete discontinuation of treatment.
