Therapy may be initiated by administering 300 mg three times a day on Day 1 or by titrating the dose (Table 2). Thereafter, the dose can be increased in three equally divided doses up to a maximum dose of 3600 mg/day. Doses up to 4800 mg/day have been well tolerated in long-term open-label clinical studies.
