How to use Siterone

If there are no special instructions to your prescriptions, you should take your tablets with a snack or after a meal. Take plenty of water together with every dose. To ensure that you do not miss a dose, take each dose at specific times, for instance after every 12 hours if you have been prescribed to take the tablets at least twice in a day. Swallow the tablets whole and do not split, crush, chew or dissolve them. This only hastens their absorption in the body and consequently reduces their ineffectiveness in treatment.

This is because each dose depends on some things including other medicines that the patient is currently taking (prescriptions, non-prescriptions, herbal or supplements), the patient’s health condition, medical history, the condition being treated and its severity. Follow your doctor’s prescriptions until completion of dosage without making any unauthorized alterations.
