How to use Coq-10
If you are using a liquid or powder form, carefully measure your dose using a medication-measuring device or spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. If your liquid form is a suspension, shake the bottle well before measuring each dose. If your liquid comes in a tube/ampule, take the dose immediately after opening and discard any left over liquid. Follow the manufacturer's directions for mixing the powder form.
If you are using chewable tablets or wafers, chew each dose thoroughly before swallowing.
If you are using a tablet made to dissolve in the mouth, dry your hands before handling the tablet. Place each dose on the tongue and allow to dissolve completely, then swallow it with saliva or water.
Do not crush or chew extended-release tablets. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Also, do not split the tablets unless they have a score line and your doctor or pharmacist tells you to do so. Swallow the whole or split tablet without crushing or chewing.
If your condition persists or worsens, or if you think you may have a serious medical problem, seek immediate medical attention.
