General considerations for when and how to take Edecrin include the following:
- The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth, usually once or twice a day. Sometimes, it is taken every other day (or even less frequently).
- You can take it with or without food.
- Edecrin should be taken at the same times each day to maintain an even level in your blood. However, some people do not need to take it every day.
- Because the medication increases urination, it is best to take it in the morning (to avoid needing to get up to use the bathroom throughout the night), unless your healthcare provider instructs you otherwise.
- For Edecrin to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. The medication will not work if you stop taking it.
The dosage that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Other medical conditions you may have
- Other medications you may currently be taking
- How you respond to Edecrin.
As with any medication, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
