Understanding your blister pack

Each blister pack of VIJOICE contains your recommended full daily dose to help ensure you take the right dose at the right time—every time.


Follow the colors to know what dose to take.


For the 50-mg dose and the 125-mg dose, alternate between the colors. For example, on the first day, take the tablet within the red or yellow strip. On the second day, take the tablet within the gray strip.

50-mg and 125-mg dose pack

For the 250-mg dose, on the first day, take both tablets within the green strip (labeled “Day 1”). On the second day, take both tablets within the gray strip (labeled “Day 2”). Each day, ensure that both the 200-mg and the 50-mg tablets are taken together.

What if I can't swallow a pill?

Answer icon

A VIJOICE tablet can be crushed and mixed into water. To learn how to make the mixture, follow the steps below.


If you can't swallow tablets, follow these steps:

Step 1 icon

Place the VIJOICE tablet or tablets in a glass containing 2 to 4 ounces of water, and let it stand for about 5 minutes. Make sure to only use water.

Step 2 icon

Crush the tablet or tablets with a spoon and stir to dissolve. The liquid will be cloudy, and you may see tablet pieces.

Step 3 icon

Drink the mixture right away.

Step 4 icon

After drinking the mixture, add about 2 to 3 tablespoons of water to the same glass. Stir with the same spoon and drink the entire contents of the glass. Repeat this step if necessary.

Step 5 icon

Throw away any contents of the glass that are not consumed within 60 minutes after preparation.

Liquids other than water should not be used for making the mixture.



If you are able to swallow tablets, please swallow VIJOICE tablets whole. Do not split or chew the tablets.
