CBC soft gels are used to help relieve mild to moderate pain and reduce inflammation and swelling caused by arthritis. They may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor. You can take broad spectrum CBC soft gels with or without meals. Some forms of broad-spectrum CBC soft capsules include:
Oral Dosage In Form Capsules
Do not crush or chew the capsules or tablets. Swallow them whole with a full glass of water, milk, juice, or other liquid other than grapefruit juice. If you cannot swallow the capsule whole, open it, sprinkle the contents over a spoonful of applesauce, and swallow right away without chewing. Try to take within 30 minutes before eating if possible. Take your doses at regular intervals. Do not take your medicine more often than directed.
For Oral Dosage Form In Oral Solution
If you switch from tablets or capsules to the oral solution, you will use a measuring spoon or device to measure the prescribed dose carefully and discard any excess solution. Do not chew or swallow the solution or other liquid unless mixed with food such as applesauce; always swallow it right away without chewing. Try to take within 30 minutes before eating if possible. Take your doses at regular intervals. Do not take your medicine more often than directed.
