The recommended dose is : –
Adults-oral: The only oral dose clearly shown to be effective is 160 mg per day (in 4 equally divided doses). Since this dose is associated with a significant incidence of side effects, It is prudent to begin with 80 mg per day ( in 4 equally divided doses). Depending upon the patient’s response during the first week of therapy, the dose should be increased to 160 mg per day unless side effects limit dosage escalation. If efficacy is not achieved within 2 weeks or side effects require doses below 80 mg per day, the drug should be discontinued. Documented safety data are not available for doses above 80 mg daily for periods longer than 2 weeks. Elderly: In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious, usually starting at the low end of the dosing range, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal, or cardiav function, and of concomitant disease or other drug therapy. Infants (6-24 months): 5-10 mg 3-4 times daily, 15 minutes before feeds. Children (2-12 years): 10 mg 3 times daily. Children (12-18 years): 10-20 mg 3 times daily.
