Why is this medication prescribed?

Ascorbic acid is used to prevent and treat scurvy, a disease caused by a lack of vitamin C in the body.

This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

How should this medicine be used?

Ascorbic acid comes in extended-release (long-acting) capsules and tablets, lozenges, syrup, chewable tablets, and liquid drops to be given by mouth. It usually is taken once a day. Follow the directions on the package or on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take ascorbic acid exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Some tablets should be chewed; other tablets and capsules should be swallowed with a full glass of water.

It may take up to 3 weeks for symptoms of scurvy to improve.
