When and How to Take It

General considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Actoplus Met XR include the following:
 
  • The medicine comes in tablet form. It should be taken by mouth, usually once a day with the evening meal.
  • It is best to take Actoplus Met XR with food in order to prevent stomach upset.
  • Actoplus Met XR should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
  • Be sure to swallow the tablets whole. Do not break, chew, or crush them, as this will cause too much medication to be released too quickly.
  • Each tablet has a tiny hole in it. This is normal and is part of the extended-release mechanism.
  • For this product to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. It will not work if you stop taking it.
