When and How to Take It

Some general considerations for when and how to take this drug include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in capsule form. It is taken by mouth twice a day, at breakfast and lunch.
     
  • You can take Eldepryl with food or on an empty stomach. If it seems to bother your stomach, try taking your doses with food.
     
  • Make sure to take Eldepryl at the same times each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
     
  • For the medicine to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Eldepryl will not work if you stop taking it. Do not suddenly stop taking the drug without first talking to your healthcare provider.
