General Dosage Information

Some considerations for people taking Lotensin include:
  • Your Lotensin dosage should be taken by mouth with a glass of water.
  • Lotensin may be taken with or without food.
  • Make sure to take Lotensin at the same time each day to maintain even levels of Lotensin in the blood.
