Since I was prescribed claravis and was told to take two doses of 40MG a day, is it okay that I take both doses at once? or am I supposed to take one in the morning and one at night?
Take Claravis exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. It perhaps would not be recommended to take both doses at the same time, presumably Claravis 40mg should be taken once in the morning & then in the evening.
However, please reconfirm this for the doc who prescribed the med. some other points to kept in mind when using Claravis:
Always take isotretinoin with a full glass of water to prevent the capsule from melting in your esophagus (food pipe), causing irritation. Do not chew or suck on the capsule. Swallow it as quickly as possible. Take isotretinoin with food or milk. Take this medication for the entire length of time prescribed by your doctor. Your acne may seem to get worse at first, but should then begin to improve.
To be sure this medication is not causing harmful effects, your blood may need to be tested often. Your liver function may also need to be tested. Visit your doctor regularly.
Never share this medicine with another person, even if they have the same symptoms you have. Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light.
