How To Use

Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually 3 times a day. Take it on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. Carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose.

To prevent constipation, eat a diet adequate in fiber, drink plenty of water, and exercise. Consult the pharmacist for help in selecting a laxative (such as a stimulant type with stool softener).
