If you have been given the "Chrono" tablet, controlled-release tablet or enteric-coated (EC) tablet, swallow it whole with a glass of water. Do not chew or crush these tablets.

If you are not sure which specific type of tablet you have been given, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

If you have been given the oral solution (syrup), do not take it with soft drinks as this will irritate your mouth and throat. Use the dropper provided to measure out your dose.
