General Information on Taking Dronabinol

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with dronabinol include the following:
 
  • Dronabinol comes in a capsule form. It is taken by mouth.
  • Early-morning use of this drug has been associated with more side effects. Therefore, it is often taken later in the day.
  • Do not crush, chew, or break the capsules; make sure to swallow them whole.
  • For dronabinol to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage of dronabinol, please talk with your healthcare provider, nurse, or pharmacist.
