posaconazole food

Moderate Food Interaction

Food significantly increases the absorption of posaconazole from the tablet or suspension formulations. The manufacturer recommends that you take the tablet with food and the oral suspension during or immediately (within 20 minutes) after a full meal. If you cannot eat a full meal, you should take the oral suspension with a liquid nutritional supplement like Ensure or an acidic carbonated beverage like ginger ale. Do not take these medications on an empty stomach, as it may lead to inadequate blood levels and reduced effectiveness. Ask your doctor before using alcohol together with posaconazole from delayed release suspension formulations as this may cause an increase in side effects. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions on how to use the medication properly.
