Starting Adult Dosage Dilantin Kapseals (extended-release capsules) is 100mg three times daily or 300 mg once daily.
Most likely, the doc would measure the amount of Dilantin in your blood (using a blood test) and adjust your dose as necessary. Because it takes a while for the medication to build up in your system, this blood test is most useful 7 to 10 days after starting Dilantin or changing your dosage (when you have reached a steady level). In emergencies, the doc may start you at a higher amount.
Please do talk yo your doc/pharmacist for more accurate info, take care.
