Take Ascriptin by mouth with or without food. If stomach upset occurs, take with food to reduce stomach irritation. Take Ascriptin with a full glass of water (8 oz/240 mL). Use Ascriptin exactly as directed on the package, unless instructed differently by your doctor. If you are taking Ascriptin without a prescription, follow any warnings and precautions on the label. If you take bisphosphonates (eg, alendronate), cation exchange resins (eg, sodium polystyrene), cephalosporins (eg, cefpodoxime), imidazole antifungals (eg, ketoconazole), penicillamine, quinolone antibiotics (eg, ciprofloxacin), or tetracycline antibiotics (eg, doxycycline), do not take them at the same time you take Ascriptin. Talk with your doctor about how you should take these other medicines along with Ascriptin. If you miss a dose of Ascriptin and you are taking it regularly, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
