A traditional dose is 8 to 10 pills 3 times per day, 1/2 – 1 hour away from meals with a cup of warm water.

Many patients start with 12 tablets morning and 12 at night about 1hour prior to bed. I have many patients who may wake during the night,so I recommend that they take another dose at that time. This helpsthem settle back to sleep in the middle of the night.

After a week or so, the body tends to ‘learn the new sleepingpattern’, and so the patient may not need the middle of the night dose.
