Treatment Tips for Videx

When and How to Take Videx

Some general considerations for when and how to take the medication include the following:
 
  • It comes in the form of delayed-release capsules (Videx EC) and as an oral solution (liquid). It is usually taken by mouth once or twice a day (depending on the particular product).
     
  • It is very important that you take it on an empty stomach, at least 30 minutes before or 2 hours after a meal.
     
  • Videx EC capsules must be swallowed whole. Do not chew, crush, or open Videx EC capsules.
     
  • Try to take it at the same time(s) every day to maintain an even level of the medication in your blood.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. It is very important that you closely follow your healthcare provider's instructions for taking Videx. Missing doses can increase the chance of the virus developing a resistance to Videx (making it less effective).
     

Dosing Information

The dosage your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Your age
  • Your weight
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may currently be taking.
     
As with any medication, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
