Provibolon - Precautions & How to Use
Before you start this treatment, read the manufacturer's printed information leaflet from inside your pack. The leaflet will give you more information about mesterolone tablets. Take the tablets exactly as your doctor has told you to. To begin with, it is usual to be prescribed 25 mg (one tablet), to be taken three or four times a day. If you need to continue taking the tablets for more than a few months, your doctor may reduce the number of tablets you need to take each day. Your doctor will tell you what dose is right for you and this will also be printed on the label of the pack to remind you. Swallow the tablet whole with a drink of water. You can take mesterolone before or after meals. Try to take your doses at the same times each day, as this will help you to remember to take them. If you forget to take a dose, you should take it when you remember. However, if when you remember, it is nearly time for your next dose then leave out the forgotten dose. Do not take two doses at the same time to make up for a missed dose.
