When to take it

Take your medicine regularly at about the same time each day.

Taking it at the same time each day will have the best effect. It will also help you remember when to take it.

How long to take it

The length of time you take ORTREX will depend on the type of infection you have.

If you have a weakened immune system or a difficult infection, you may need long-term treatment to prevent the infection from returning.

You may be switched from the injection to ORTREX Tablets or Oral Suspension once your condition improves.

Continue taking ORTREX for as long as your doctor or pharmacist recommends. Do not stop taking ORTREX because you are feeling better.

If you do not complete the full course prescribed by your doctor, the infection may not clear completely or your symptoms may return.

If you forget to take it

If you forget to take one dose, skip the dose you missed and take your next dose when you are meant to.
Do not take a double dose to make up for the dose that you missed.
This may increase the chance of you getting an unwanted side effect.
If you are not sure what to do, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
If you have trouble remembering to take your medicine, ask your pharmacist for some hints.
ORTREX IV will be given to you under close medical supervision. It is unlikely that a dose would be missed.
However, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you think that a dose has been forgotten.
