How should this medicine be used?

Isoxsuprine comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken three or four times a day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take isoxsuprine exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.
