  • The determination of optimal dosage requires individual titration. Start therapy at a low dosage and increase gradually until optimum effect is achieved (usually between 40 to 80 mg daily).

    The following dosage titration schedule is suggested:

    • 5 mg t.i.d. for 3 days
    • 10 mg t.i.d. for 3 days
    • 15 mg t.i.d. for 3 days
    • 20 mg t.i.d. for 3 days

    Thereafter additional increases may be necessary but the total daily dose should not exceed a maximum of 80 mg daily (20 mg q.i.d.).

    The lowest dose compatible with an optimal response is recommended. If benefits are not evident after a reasonable trial period, patients should be slowly withdrawn from the drug (see WARNINGS Abrupt Drug Withdrawal).
