Dosage and administration
For oral use.
The tablets can be divided into 2 equal parts to ensure accurate dosing.
The recommended starting dose is 2 mg ephedrine hydrochloride (corresponding to 1.64 mg of ephedrine) per kg bodyweight (BW), equivalent to 1 tablet per 25 kg BW, per day during the first 10 days of treatment. The daily dose may be divided. Once the desired effect has been achieved, the dose can be reduced to one half or less. Based on the observed effect and taking into account the occurrence of adverse effects, the individual dose should be adjusted to find the lowest effective dose. The lowest effective dose should be maintained for long-term treatment. In case of a relapse, the dose should be increased to 2 mg ephedrine hydrochloride per kg BW again. Once the effective dose has been established, dogs should still be monitored at regular intervals. This tablet strength is not appropriate for dogs weighing less than 12.5 kg (recommended starting dose of 2 mg/kg).
