usual dose

This is the typical oral dose (all inhalational, suppository or injectables will be specified) given for a particular clinical situation. In most cases, the dose prescribed by your physician will be influenced by many factors including patient age, general health, health history, pregnancy, breast feeding, allergic history, weight and the specific disorder or disease that is being treated. Geriatric patients may be more sensitive to the usual dosage listed here. Pay close attention to the medication strength (in milligrams or grams) listed on the medication container. Caution: Dosage interval may vary with extended-release or slow-Release preparations.
