Indications

Mepron is a prescription medication that contains the active ingredient atovaquone. It is used to prevent and treat Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia (PCP) in adults and children 13 years of age and older. Mepron is also used to treat the symptoms of Malaria caused by the P. falciparum parasite.

Mepron is highly effective in treating and preventing Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia (PCP), a type of lung infection that often affects people with weakened immune systems. Mepron is only available with a prescription and should be used under the guidance of a healthcare provider.

Uses and Dosage

Mepron solutions are intended for oral administration and should be taken with food. The suspension is bright yellow with a citrus flavor. Take the medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor and at regular intervals. Shake the bottle well before use and use the dosing device provided to measure the prescribed dose.

To ensure the efficiency of Mepron solution, maintain a constant level of medicine in your body. If you are taking Mepron twice a day, it should be taken at regular intervals about 12 hours apart. For those taking Mepron once a day, it should be taken at the same time every day. Complete the full course of treatment, as stopping early may cause the infection to return.

To treat Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia (PCP), take Mepron Suspension by mouth with food as directed by your doctor, usually twice daily for 21 days. To prevent PCP, take Mepron with food usually once a day as directed. It must be taken with food so your body can absorb as much of the medication as possible so it can work well.
