... 15mg when the package says 5 is starting dose. Also, my daughter in law says he is only taking this during the week and not the weekend. Has anyone heard of this being done? Again the prescription said once daily? I am scared he is going to get hurt and he will be he for the weekend. What about withdrawal? or what can go wrong with not getting his med on the weekend?
For whatever reason the doc chose to start him on 15. It is not recommended to skip weekends, for the simple reason that it will take at least 2 days of taking it for it to help him again, meaning he may be a problem in school on mon and tues. It can be stopped over the summer, however.
