What is the most important information I should know about this medicine?
Many drugs can interact with methylene blue. During your treatment with this medicine, do not start or stop using any other medications without your doctor's advice.
If you take an antidepressant or psychiatric medication, call your doctor right away if you have signs of a serious drug interaction, including: confusion, memory problems, feeling hyperactive (mentally or physically), loss of coordination, muscle twitching, shivering, sweating, diarrhea, and/or fever.
How should I take this medicine?
Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.
Drink plenty of liquids while you are taking this medicine.
Hyoscyamine can slow your digestion, and it may take longer for your body to absorb any medicines you take by mouth.
