Videx EC

May 29, 2002

Hi Dr Young,

Is taking 4 Videx 100mg chewable tablets once a day going to have the same effect as taking one Videx EC 400mg capsule ?

I am currently using Videx twice a day (2x100mg) and am having difficulty obtaining the Videx EC tablets.

Thanks, Franc.

Response from Dr. Young

Franc- yes. While the EC is more convenient to take, the two dosing schemes that you've mentioned are equivalent.
