  • Stir this mixture well and swallow it without chewing.
  • You can also pour the medicine beads into a spoon, swallow the beads, and then drink some fruit drink. Most people will use this medicine for a few weeks.
  • If your symptoms come back after you stop using the medicine, you might need to wait a short time and then use the medicine again for a few weeks. The amount of medicine you take each day might change as your treatment proceeds.
  • Make sure you understand how much medicine to take each day and when to take it.
  • Drink plenty of water while you are using this medicine.

  • Do not use extra medicine to make up for a missed dose.

Drug Interactions
  • Make sure your doctor knows if you are pregnant, or if you have kidney disease, liver disease, or blood problems. You must also get rid of the lead or other heavy metal that made you sick.
  • Find out how you have been exposed to a heavy metal.
  • This medicine will not protect you from a heavy metal that you are still being exposed to.
  • Ask your health caregiver about the best ways to get rid of or avoid the heavy metal that caused the problem. Make sure your doctor knows if you are breastfeeding.

  • This medicine may affect the results of certain medical tests. This medicine may make you dizzy or drowsy.
  • Avoid driving, using machines, or doing anything else that could be dangerous if you are not alert. Your doctor will need to check your blood at regular visits while you are using this medicine.
  • Be sure to keep all appointments.
  • Your doctor will also need to check your blood after you stop using the medicine, to make sure the metal is gone from your body. Tell your doctor if you have ever used succimer before, especially if you had any side effects to it. For people who have diabetes: This medicine may affect the results of some urine tests for ketones (such as Ketostix®).
  • Ask your doctor what kind of ketone test you should use while you are using succimer.
