Storage Methods

Edecrin should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should also be kept in an airtight container.
 
Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Edecrin?

If you do not take your Edecrin as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next scheduled dose, skip the missed one and continue with normal dosing. Do not take a double dose.
 

Available Strengths

Edecrin is available in one strength -- Edecrin 25 mg tablets.
 
Injectable Edecrin is also available for use in hospitals. This form is called Sodium Edecrin® (ethacrynate sodium).
 

Can I Buy Generic Edecrin?

Currently, there is no generic Edecrin licensed for sale. Even though the patent for the medication expired quite a while ago, no manufacturers have chosen to make generic Edecrin. This is common in older medications that are rarely used.
