- Although it does not matter what time of day you take Jantoven, be sure to take it at the same time each day.
- You can take this medication with food or on an empty stomach.
- If necessary, the tablets can be broken in half. However, it is best to avoid this, since even tiny variations in the dosage can cause problems.
- For Jantoven to work properly, it must be taken as directed.
The recommended dose of Jantoven will vary, depending on how you respond to the medication (this is monitored using regular blood tests). As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
