Brief Answer:
take it as usual

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

you should take it as usual. 300mg can also be given once per day, so don't worry about the timing. As a general advice try to remember that whenever you forget a dose you should take it as soon as possible unless the next dose is very close.

Kind Regards!
