How To Use
  • HOW TO USE THIS MEDICATION: Take this medication by mouth, generally once daily, as directed by your doctor.
  • Drink plenty of fluids while using this drug, unless instructed otherwise.
  • The length of treatment depends on your condition and response to therapy.
  • Take this medication exactly as prescribed.
  • Do not exceed the recommended dose of this medication.
  • Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level.
  • This is done by taking the medication at evenly spaced intervals (e.g., every 24 hours).
  • Continue to take this medication until the full-prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days.
  • Stopping the medicine too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, resulting in a relapse of the infection.
  • Take this medication either 4 hours before or 8 hours after taking didanosine, sucralfate, aluminum, magnesium or calcium- containing antacids, iron or zinc preparations or vitamin/mineral products.
  • These products may bind with this medicine and interfere with its absorption.
  • Consult your pharmacist for more information.

Side Effects
  • Nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea, mild dizziness or headache may occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor promptly.

  • This drug may make you dizzy.
  • Use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness such as driving or using machinery.
