Some general considerations for when and how to take the medication include:
- Sular comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth, usually once a day.
- It should be taken on an empty stomach or with a low-fat meal or snack. Taking it with a high-fat meal can increase the level of Sular in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects.
- Because Sular tablets are extended release, they should not be broken, crushed, or chewed. Be sure to swallow the tablets whole.
- It should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level of the drug in your blood.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Sular will not work if you stop taking it.
The dosage that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
- Other medical conditions you may have
- Other medications you may currently be taking.
As is the case with any medication, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

When side effects do occur, in most cases they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
