The initial dosage should be maintained or adjusted until a satisfactory response is noted.

The dosage requirements are variable and must be individualized on the basis of the disease under treatment and the response of the patient rather than by strict adherence to the ratio indicated by age or body weight. After a favorable response is noted, the proper maintenance dosage should be determined by decreasing the initial drug dosage in small increments at appropriate time intervals until the lowest dosage which will maintain an adequate clinical response is reached.
