Lubiprostone Dosage

Dose Adjustment of Lubiprostone in People with Impaired Liver Function

Tell your healthcare provider if you have liver disease. Based on the level of impairment of your liver, your doctor may need to reduce your dose accordingly.
 

General Information on Your Lubiprostone Dosage

Some considerations for people taking lubiprostone include the following:
 
  • Lubiprostone comes in capsule form. It is usually taken by mouth twice daily with food and water.
     
  • Make sure to swallow the capsules whole. Do not chew or open them.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Lubiprostone will not continue to work if you stop taking it.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or lubiprostone dosing in general, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
