INDICATIONS

CANTIL (mepenzolate bromide) is indicated for use as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of peptic ulcer. It has not been shown to be effective in contributing to the healing of peptic ulcer, decreasing the rate of recurrence, or preventing complications.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

The usual adult dose is 1 or 2 tablets (25 or 50 mg) 4 times a day preferably with meals and at bedtime. Begin with the lower dosage when possible and adjust subsequently according to the patient's response.

Safety and efficacy in pediatric patients have not been established.

In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious, usually starting at the low end of the dosing range, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal or cardiac function, and of concomitant disease or other drug therapy. (See PRECAUTIONS, Geriatric Use.)

HOW SUPPLIED

25 mg mepenzolate bromide, compressed yellow tablets debossed MERRELL 37.

NDC 0068-0037-01: bottles of 100
