When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Norpace CR include the following:
  • Norpace CR comes in the form of a capsule. It is usually taken by mouth twice a day, every 12 hours.
  • You will begin treatment with Norpace CR in a hospital, where a healthcare provider can closely monitor you.
  • This medication can be taken with or without food. Try taking it with food if it seems to bother your stomach.
  • Do not crush or chew Norpace CR capsules; they must be swallowed whole.
