When and How to Take Requip XL

Some general considerations include the following:
 
  • Requip XL comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth once a day.
     
  • It does not matter if you take the medication with food or on an empty stomach. If it bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
     
  • Make sure to swallow the tablets whole. Do not dissolve, crush, or chew the tablets. Also, do not take tablets that are broken or chipped.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. It will not work if you stop taking it.
