Make sure you aren’t accidentally sabotaging the medication. Avoid citric acid (orange juice, citrus fruits, soda, some vitamins, etc) one hour before and after taking your medication. Make sure you have protein with your breakfast, and drink lots of water throughout the day. This will optimize your medication experience.

Touch base with your prescriber when you can and discuss your medication experiences.
