Skelid

When and How to Take Skelid

General considerations for when and how to take Skelid include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth every day for three months.
     
  • Take Skelid on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Do not lie down for at least 30 minutes after taking a dose. Do not eat for two hours before or after taking the medication. Many foods interact with Skelid, decreasing its absorption into the body (making it less effective).
     
  • Swallow Skelid tablets whole with a full glass of plain water (not any other beverage).
     
  • Do not take vitamins, minerals, or antacids that contain calcium, iron, magnesium, or aluminum within two hours of taking Skelid (see Skelid Drug Interactions).
     
  • It is best to take Skelid at the same time each day to maintain an even level of the medication in your blood.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
