Important Instructions for Zerit

When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind when taking this drug include the following:
  • Zerit comes in the form of capsules or an oral solution (liquid). It is usually taken by mouth twice a day.
  • It does not matter if you take it with food or on an empty stomach. If it bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • Try to take this medicine at the same times 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 this drug. Missing doses can increase the chance of the virus developing a resistance to Zerit (making it less effective).
