General Information on Dosing With Tekturna

Considerations for people taking Tekturna include the following:
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once daily.
  • You should take Tekturna consistently, either with or without food (fatty meals may decrease the absorption of Tekturna). In other words, either always take the drug with food or never take it with food.
  • Make sure to take Tekturna at the same time each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Tekturna will not work if you stop taking it.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your Tekturna dosage, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Do not stop taking the drug without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
