I was admitted to the hospital with a 5.4 blood level. Was released with a 8.4 after transfusions. Was prescribed this medication and was tested 2 weeks later with a 10.8. Seems effective. Must take on empty stomach with orange juice. Has warning not to lie down within 30 minutes of taking medication. Was a little nauseous for a couple of days.
