How should I take Danazol?

Danazol comes in the form of a capsule that you take by mouth. It can be taken with or without food, and it's usually taken one or two times per day. Your dosage will depend on your specific medical condition and your overall health, but it's very important to follow the dosage instructions provided by your doctor. If you're taking danazol to treat endometriosis or fibrocystic breast disease, you should start taking danazol during menstruation or should be tested to make sure you're not pregnant before starting this medication. It's also recommended that women use a non-hormonal type of birth control (condoms, diaphragms, etc.) while taking danazol to make sure they don't get pregnant. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about how to take danazol.
