  • Swallow tablets whole; do not crush, cut, or chew
  • Stay on your diet and exercise program while taking XIGDUO XR
  • Talk to your doctor about any medical conditions that may interfere with your ability to tolerate XIGDUO XR
  • Before starting XIGDUO XR—and during treatment—your doctor will check your kidney function
  • If you miss a dose of XIGDUO XR, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the medicine at the next regularly scheduled time. Do not take 2 tablets of XIGDUO XR at the same time unless your doctor tells you to do so
