... do you use. I have never been able to get on a schedule and have to deal the problem of low sodium occuring which is very troublesome. thank you
The dosage must be determined for each individual patient depending on response.
The usual dosage range in adults is 0.1 to 0.4 mL daily, either as a single dose or divided into two or three doses. Most adults require 0.2 mL daily in two divided doses (morning and night)
The nasal spray pump can only deliver doses of 0.1 mL (10 mcg) or multiples of 0.1 mL. The spray pump must be primed prior to the first use. To prime pump, press down four times. The bottle will now deliver 0.1ml (10 mcg) of drug per spray every spray thereafter (after 50 sprays the bottle should be discarded)
Hope this helps.
My daughter had the same problem so we switched to the pill form so we can change the dosages to smaller forms at different times. Unfortunately I was told that some people are just inconsistent with the meds and how long they last so I give her a certain amount in the morning and at night and a supplement in the afternoon only if she needs it
