When and How to Take This Medicine

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with carbinoxamine extended-release oral suspension include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in the form of an extended-release oral suspension (a liquid). It is usually taken by mouth twice a day, with 12 hours between doses.
 
  • Carbinoxamine extended-release oral suspension can be taken with or without food. Try taking it with food if it bothers your stomach.
