Veozah comes as an oral tablet that you swallow whole. Do not divide, crush, chew, or place the tablet in water. You may take your dose with or without food.

It may be helpful to take Veozah around the same time of day. This helps maintain a steady level of the drug in your body so Veozah can work effectively.

If you have trouble swallowing tablets, see this article for tips on how to take this form of medication. You can also talk with your doctor or pharmacist.


Some pharmacies offer labels with large print, braille, or a code you scan with a smartphone to convert text to speech. If your local pharmacy doesn’t have these options, your doctor or pharmacist might be able to recommend a pharmacy that does.

If you’re having trouble opening medication bottles, ask your pharmacist about putting Veozah in an easy-open container. They also may recommend tools that can make it easier to open bottles.

If you miss a dose of Veozah, take it as soon as you remember on the same day, at least 12 hours before the next scheduled dose. You can resume your normal dosing schedule the next day. If you’re not sure whether you should take a missed dose or skip it, talk with your doctor or pharmacist.

To help make sure that you don’t miss a dose, try using a medication reminder. This can include setting an alarm or putting a note where you’ll see it, such as on your bathroom mirror or bedside table. You could also download a reminder app on your phone.

It’s important that you don’t take more Veozah than your doctor prescribes. For some medications, taking more than the recommended amount may lead to harmful effects or overdose.

If you take more than the recommended amount of Veozah

Call your doctor right away if you believe you’ve taken too much Veozah. Another option is to call America’s Poison Centers at 800-222-1222 or use its online tool. If you have severe symptoms, immediately call 911 or your local emergency number, or go to the nearest emergency room.

Below are some frequently asked questions about Veozah.

Is the dosage of Veozah similar to the dosage of Bijuva?

Yes, the forms and how often you take each drug are similar. Veozah and Bijuva are both oral tablets taken once per day.

To learn more about how these drugs compare, talk with your doctor.

How long does it take for Veozah to start working?

Veozah starts to work after your first dose, but you likely won’t feel the full effects of the medication for a few weeks.
