Gris-Peg Directions To Use
• Take griseofulvin exactly as directed by your doctor. If you do not understand these instructions, ask your pharmacist, nurse, or doctor to explain them to you.
• Take each dose with a full glass (8 ounces) of water.
• Your doctor may recommend that you take griseofulvin with a fatty meal to increase its absorption into your body.
• Take all of the griseofulvin that has been prescribed for you even if you begin to feel better. Your symptoms may begin to improve before the infection is completely treated.
• Shake the suspension well before measuring a dose. To ensure that you get a correct dose, measure the liquid form of griseofulvin with a dose-measuring spoon or cup, not with a regular tablespoon. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist where you can get one.
• Store griseofulvin tablets, capsules, and suspension at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
