Important Instructions on Epzicom

When and How to Take This Medicine

General considerations to keep in mind when taking Epzicom include the following:
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth just once a day.
  • You can take Epzicom with or without food. If the medicine bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • Try to take Epzicom at the same time every day to maintain an even level in your blood.
  • For the drug to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. It is very important that you closely follow your healthcare provider's instructions about taking Epzicom. Missing doses can increase the chance of the virus developing resistance to Epzicom, making it less effective.

Dosing Information

There is only one standard dose of Epzicom, regardless of your age or weight. However, this medication is not usually recommended for people with liver disease or kidney disease, since the dosages of the individual components cannot be adjusted separately. For these people, it is usually recommended that the two medications in Epzicom be taken separately so that the appropriate amounts can be achieved.
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
