Basic Information on Solodyn

When and How to Use Solodyn

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment include the following:
 
  • Solodyn comes as an extended-release tablet that slowly releases medication into your body. It is usually taken once a day.
     
  • This medication can be taken with or without food. Taking it with food may lower your risk for irritation or ulcers of the esophagus (the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach).
     
  • Try to take your dose at the same time each day to keep an even level of the drug in your bloodstream.
     
  • The tablets must be swallowed whole. Do not chew, crush, or cut them.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
     

Dosing Information

The dosage your healthcare provider recommends will depend on a number of factors, including your weight and how well your kidneys function (see Solodyn Dosage for more information).
 

Are There Side Effects?

Just like any medicine, Solodyn may cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the drug will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well.
 
If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious reactions are less common.
 
The most common side effects seen with Solodyn include:
 
  • Headache
  • Tiredness
  • Dizziness
  • Itching.
