When and How Do I Take It?

The following are some general considerations for when and how to take Mellaril:
 
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth two or four times a day.
     
  • You can take it with or without food. If the medicine bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
     
  • Mellaril should be taken at the same times each day to maintain even levels of the drug in your blood.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. It will not work if you stop taking it.
     

Mellaril Dosing

The dosage that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The severity of your schizophrenia
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may be currently taking.
     
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
