When and How to Take It

Some general considerations for when and how to take procyclidine include the following:
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth, usually three times a day (after meals) or four times a day (after meals and at bedtime).
  • Make sure to take it at the same times each day to maintain an even level of the medication in your blood.
  • Procyclidine tablets are scored and may be split in half if necessary.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. It will not work if you stop taking it.
