How to Use Sodium Oxybate Oral Solution

Sodium Oxybate Oral Solution is a liquid that must be diluted in water. If you have been prescribed Sodium Oxybate Oral Solution, it should be taken in two doses.

Take the first dose once you are in bed for the night and at least 2 hours after eating, then take the second dose 2.5 to 4 hours later, or as directed by a doctor.
