What should I know about Accolate before taking it?

Talk with your doctor if you are breastfeeding, pregnant or are trying to get pregnant while taking Accolate. Discuss any food or medication allergies with your doctor as well. If you have liver disease, a history of mental or mood disturbances or if you take steroids, such as prednisone, talk with your doctor about how these might affect your use of Accolate. Some rare cases of serious liver failure have been reported by people using Accolate.

Accolate does not treat asthma attacks. It is a long-term medication to help keep them from happening and is not meant to provide short-term relief of asthma attacks. Accolate should be taken orally (by mouth) as prescribed, usually at the same time each day. Continue to take Accolate even if you are symptom-free, unless your doctor tells you otherwise.
