1 box contains 2 strips with 10 tablets = 20 tablets per box. 1 box = 1 week supply. Take one tablet 20-30 min before food 3x a day, preferably before breakfast, lunch and dinner. The tablets are to be taken by mouth either with or w/o water. This pill works the exact way as the Apetamin syrup so if you are the type who prefers the pills instead of the syrup then this is for you. Side effects include drowsiness on the first day of taking it.
