How to Take OFEV

The usual dose of OFEV
is 1 capsule, twice a day;

1 capsule in the morning
and 1 in the evening.

150 mg capsules — not shown at actual size.

Taking OFEV capsules when you have breakfast and dinner is a good way to remember to take it on schedule.
  • Take OFEV with adequate food approximately 12 hours apart and swallow it whole with liquid.

  • Do not chew or crush OFEV capsules.

  • If you miss a dose, skip it and take your next dose at the regular time. Do not take 2 doses at the same time.

  • If you take too much OFEV (more than 300 mg
    in 1 day), call your doctor or go to the nearest hospital right away.

Since OFEV works to slow the decline in lung function, it may be hard for you to see the results. Don't stop taking it because you think it isn't working; your doctor will conduct periodic tests to determine how well OFEV is working for you. Keep the lines of communication open with your healthcare team, and feel free to ask any questions you may have about IPF or OFEV.
