How should I take Exalgo?

Take Exalgo once a day unless your doctor tells you otherwise. Try to take it at the same time every day. You can take Exalgo with or without food. Swallow the capsule whole. Don't break open, chew, split or dissolve the capsule. The capsule passes through your system intact, so don't be alarmed if you notice it in your stool. If your pain is not well controlled, call your doctor. Never take more Exalgo than has been prescribed. Don't stop taking this drug without talking to your doctor first.
