When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Tikosyn include the following:
  • Tikosyn comes in the form of a capsule. It is usually taken by mouth twice a day.
  • This medication must be started in a hospital setting so your heart rate and kidneys can be monitored. You will remain in the hospital for at least three days after beginning treatment.
  • You can take Tikosyn with or without food. Try taking it with food if it seems to bother your stomach.
  • Try to take your doses at the same time each day to keep an even level of the drug in your bloodstream.
  • For Tikosyn to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.

Dosing Information

The dose of Tikosyn your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
  • Your heart rate
  • Your kidney function
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medicines you are taking.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
