DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:

In clinical trials, daily doses of 1000 mg, 2000 mg, and 3000 mg, given as twice a day dosing, were shown to be effective. Although in some studies there was a tendency toward greater response with higher dose (see Clinical Studies) a consistent increase in response with increased dose has not been shown.
Treatment should be initiated with a daily dose of 1000 mg/day, given as twice daily dosing (500 mg BID). Additional dosing increments may be given (1000 mg/day additional every 2 weeks) to a maximum recommended daily dose of 3000 mg. Long term experience at doses greater than 3000 mg/day is relatively minimal, and there is no evidence that doses greater than 3000 mg/day confer additional benefit.
