Shake the suspension before you measure a dose. Use the dosing syringe provided, or use a medicine dose-measuring device (not a kitchen spoon).

If the suspension will not be used for 2 days or longer, shake the bottle vigorously for 1 minute each day to keep the granules thoroughly mixed.

Read and carefully follow any Instructions for Use provided with your medicine. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you do not understand these instructions.

Your dose needs may change if you switch from using mirabegron tablets to using the suspension. Avoid medication errors by using only the form and strength your doctor prescribes.

Your blood pressure will need to be checked often.

It may take up to 8 weeks before your symptoms improve. Keep using the medication as directed and tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve.
