Branded AUBAGIO® (teriflunomide) is one pill, once a day. It can be taken any time, with or without food. One way to ensure you’re taking it as prescribed is to get into a routine.
Keep your medication visible
Place your AUBAGIO bottle next to something you do at the same time every day. For example, if you take your medication in the mornings, keep it next to the coffee pot.
Mark your calendar
Put a check on your calendar every time you take your AUBAGIO. If you take more than 1 medication, use a different color ink for each of your different medicines.
Set a daily reminder
Use your phone’s appointment app to set daily reminders so you never forget to take your AUBAGIO. Just set the alarm on day 1, and repeat it the same time every day. Sometimes that daily alert can be just the prompt you need to remember.
Take AUBAGIO with other daily activities
Take your medication before taking your dog out or going for your morning walk. Linking your AUBAGIO with an activity that you’re already doing every day can really help establish it as part of your routine.

The most common side effects when taking AUBAGIO include: headache; diarrhea; nausea; hair thinning or loss; and abnormal liver test results. These are not all the side effects of AUBAGIO. Tell your healthcare provider about any side effect that bothers you.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Your risk may be higher if you already have liver problems or take other medicines that affect your liver. Your healthcare provider should do blood tests to check your liver within 6 months before you start AUBAGIO and monthly for 6 months after starting AUBAGIO. View More
