Talk to your physician about any health conditions that could create an undesired reaction with the medicament. Your physician must know whether you have an allergy
to Virlix or any of its components. If you have had kidney failure
or a liver
disorder, your physician may need to adjust the dosage or you may need to undergo special monitoring while taking this medicament. Virlix has not been found to have any harmful effects to an unborn baby; however, your pregnancy must be discussed with your doctor. This is also true for mothers who are breastfeeding since Virlix can be excreted in breast
milk. Tell your physician if you are breastfeeding before you begin taking this medicament. Special precautions need to be taken for adults age 65 and above. As you age, your body's lower resistance may increase your risks for side effects. Your physician will make the necessary dosage adjustments applicable to your case.
Once proper dosage is determined, follow it strictly to benefit from the effects of Virlix. Virlix is available in chewable, liquid suspension, and tablet form and is taken orally. The chewables need to be chewed completely before swallowing
. The liquid suspension need to be shaken thoroughly and measured in an accurate measuring spoon. Do not use a regular tablespoon, as a measuring spoon is far more accurate. Take the tablet with a glass of water and swallow the tablet whole. Crushing it will make its bitter taste even more challenging so it is better to swallow the tablet whole. Virlix can be taken on an empty stomach
. Unless your physician tells you otherwise, continue with your normal diet.
Follow the dosing schedule prescribed by your physician. When taking Virlix, you may experience drowsiness or dizziness
. If symptoms become more serious or come with breathing difficulty or rashes, talk to your physician immediately.
Be careful when performing physically challenging activities while taking Virlix. Your abilities to operate a machine or drive may be affected by the drowsiness caused by Virlix. Avoid such activities for the duration of your treatment. Do not consume alcohol while taking Virlix since it may increase the side effects the same way some medicaments do. Talk to your physician about prescription and non-prescription medicaments you are taking prior to taking this medicament to ensure your safety.
Virlix is best kept out of reach of young children. Store it away from heat or moisture. Do not share your prescription with others and use it only for the condition it was prescribed. Other conditions will require a diagnosis for an accurate prescription. Take your physician's advice seriously.
