  3. Dosing and Administration

The tablet is quite large, I won't be able to swallow it, can I crush it or dissolve it in water?

Despite the size of the tablets, they have a smooth coating that makes them easy to swallow. However, if you are unable to swallow them whole, we recommend breaking them in half. When breaking the coating, the 'marine flavor' will likely be noticeable, and so we would not recommend crushing the tablets or dissolving them in water, as moisture is not ideal for the ingredient.
Take two PreCardix® tablets together, 1 time per day. Take a few hours (2-3 hours) before or after taking other medications or natural health products. Take between meals, before noon.

Always consult with your health care provider before making changes to your blood pressure management plan. PreCardix® does not treat, cure or prevent medical conditions.  Measure and monitor blood pressure regularly. Know the signs of heart attack and stroke. Do not take PreCardix® if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have renal artery stenosis, history of angioneurotic edema or shellfish allergy.
