I purchased Bencoprim 10mg in Mexico for low back muscle pain.
I had a prescription in the past but forgot how often to take.
I weigh approx 300lbs. Should I take 1 evening & morning?




Dear Stacey,

Take Bencoprim with a full glass of water.

Bencoprim is taken in 5 or 10 mg tablets three times a day.

You should start with no more than a 5 mg dosage.

This medication is not recommended to be taken for more than two to three weeks.

If you miss a dose, take it when you remember. Or if you are near the time for your next dose, skip the missed dose. Do not double a dose to make up for a forgotten one.

Do not take Bencoprimif you have used an MAO inhibitor such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), tranylcypromine (Parnate), phenelzine (Nardil), or selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam) within the past 14 days.

Serious, life-threatening side effects can occur if you take Bencoprim before the MAO inhibitor has cleared from your body.

Bencoprim can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert.

Avoid drinking alcohol, which can increase some of the side effects of Bencoprim.

You should not take Bencoprim if you have recently had a heart attack, or if you have a heart rhythm disorder or congestive heart failure.

People over 65 years of age should not take Bencoprim.

Take Bencoprim tablets by mouth.

Swallow the tablets with a drink.

Bencoprim may be taken with or without food.

Bencoprim should be prescribed by your doctor.
