When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Myfortic include the following:
  • This medication comes in the form of a delayed-release tablet. It is taken by mouth twice a day.
  • Try to take your doses at the same times each day to keep an even level of the drug in your bloodstream.
  • Take this medication on an empty stomach, one hour before or two hours after food.
  • Do not crush, cut, or chew Myfortic tablets. They must be swallowed whole. This is because the tablets have a special coating so they pass through the stomach and dissolve in the intestines.
  • For Myfortic to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.

Dosing Information

The dose of Myfortic your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
  • Your age
  • Your height and weight (in children)
  • Other medications you may be taking.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
