Important Instructions on Taking Demadex
When and How to Take DemadexSome general considerations for when and how to take Demadex include the following:
- The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth, usually once a day.
- You can take your dosage with or without food.
- Demadex 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, especially people taking it for fluid retention.
- Because the medication increases urination, it is best to take it in the morning (to avoid getting up to use the bathroom throughout the night), unless your healthcare provider instructs you otherwise.
- For Demadex to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. The medication will not work if you stop taking it.
Dosing InformationThe dose of Demadex your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Other medical conditions you may have
- Other medications you may be taking
- How you respond to the drug.
As with any medication, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
