Dosing Tips and Guidelines for Verelan PM

When and How to Take Verelan PM

Some general considerations for when and how to take Verelan PM include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in the form of a capsule. It is taken by mouth, usually once a day at bedtime.
     
  • You can take Verelan PM with or without food.
     
  • The capsules contain extended-release beads that slowly release the medication over time. Be sure to swallow them whole.
     
  • For people who have difficulty swallowing, Verelan PM capsules may be opened and the contents sprinkled onto a spoonful of applesauce. The applesauce should not be hot and should be swallowed immediately (without chewing). Follow the applesauce with a glass of cool water.
     
  • This drug should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
     
  • For Verelan PM to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. The medicine will not work if you stop taking it.
     

Dosing Information

The dose of Verelan PM your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
