Hi WildcatVet, I got a doubt and I read many pages saying max dosage is 60-80 mg per day. I wanted to check.
I am sure its 320mg - my medication was started 11 months ago, and the dosage was increased during every review.
Let me explain you,
Morning: 2 tab of 60 mg + 1tab of 40mg=
Evening: 2 tab of 60 mg + 1tab of 40mg=
I found that there was change in my body's coordination. I regularly go to gym, and day by day I felt harder- that bothered me a lot.
The maximum recommended dosage is 60-80mg/day depending on the condition being treated.
Are you positive that 320mg is what the doctor prescribed? Could it be 3x20mg/day?
You need to verify the dosage with your doctor ASAP.
