When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Nilandron include the following:
  • Nilandron comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth once a day.
  • Try to take your dose at the same time each day, to keep an even level of the medicine in your bloodstream.
  • This medicine can be taken with or without food. Try taking it with food if it upsets your stomach.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Do not stop taking this medicine because you feel better.

Dosing Information

There is only one standard recommended dose of Nilandron. As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
