When and How to Take ItSome general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Onfi include the following:
- Onfi comes in tablet and oral suspension (liquid) form. It is usually taken by mouth twice a day, although the lowest dose can be taken just once a day.
- You may take this medication with or without food.
- For the liquid version, make sure to shake the bottle well before each dose. The bottle will come with an adaptor and two oral syringes. Keep the adaptor on the bottle once it is in place (the cap will fit over the adaptor). Squirt the liquid into a corner of the child's mouth.
- The tablets may be broken in half or crushed, if necessary. The best way to take a crushed tablet is to mix it with applesauce and consume it right away.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Onfi will not work if you stop taking it. Do not stop taking the medication suddenly, as doing so can be dangerous.
Dosing InformationThe dose your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Your age and weight
- Other medications you may be taking
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.

Side Effects of OnfiJust like any medicine, Onfi may cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well.
If reactions do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
