Dosage information

The dosage on the notice indicates 1 to 1,5mg/kg/day but to take in 3 times after a meal. For example 10 tablets can split in 4 in the morning, 3 at lunch and 3 in the evening. Or 8 tablets can split in 3 + 3 + 2.

I have also found in different places that the maximum dose is of 90mg/day, although it is not on this notice. My prescription is currently 100mg/day so this is not written in stone.

Physicians apparently advise to start on the lower dosing basis of 1mg/kg/day in order to evaluate if the extract is well tolerated.

The number of 10mg tablets per day where BW is the body weight in Kg is as follow : (BW / 10) to (BW X 1,5/10).

To clarify the dosage information from the notice, the document below shows the number of 10mg tablets of  medicinal Thunder God Vine per day according to body weight.
