Do not chew or swallow the tablets. Before taking, dissolve the dose in 4 ounces (120 milliliters) of water or an acidic fruit drink (such as orange juice). Drink all of the mixture immediately.

To prevent withdrawal reactions, your doctor may reduce your dose gradually. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details, and report any withdrawal reactions immediately.
