One tablet is normally taken once or twice each day for a cycle of medication lasting one or two weeks, but your individual dosage will depend on the condition being treated, your current health, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be swallowed with a large glass of water and may be taken with or without food, but a snack or meal is recommended prior to use if you experience nausea. Do not change the form of the tablets by crushing, splitting, or chewing them to avoid destroying or altering the effects of their contents.
