Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Aubagio include the following:
- Aubagio comes in the form of a tablet. It is usually taken by mouth once a day.
- You can take Aubagio with or without food. Try taking it with food if it upsets your stomach.
- You can take this medicine any time of day. Try to take it at the same time each day, however, to keep an even level of the drug in your bloodstream.
- Your healthcare provider will want to obtain certain blood tests before you start treatment, and periodically during treatment, to make sure Aubagio is safe for you to take.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
The dose of Aubagio your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- How you respond to and tolerate Aubagio
- The severity of your condition.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
