How should I take Isentress?

You should take Isentress exactly as directed by your doctor. Typically, this will be twice daily. It can be swallowed with or without food but should not be chewed, crushed or cut. It is important to take Isentress at the same time each day so that you do not miss a dose. Do not take Isentress within 2 hours of taking an aluminum- or magnesium-containing antacid, as this may make Isentress less effective. If Isentress is not taken regularly, the virus may develop a resistance to it or other medications with which it was combined. Do not stop taking Isentress if you feel better. Talk to your doctor if you want to stop taking Isentress.
