How to Take Asendin
The initial dose is 50mg two to three times daily. After two to three weeks that may be increased to 100mg two to three times daily. Presuming this stuff works, the maintenance dose of 200–300mg may then be taken all at once at bedtime, but anything above 300mg a day needs to be split into two, or even three doses a day.
Inpatients may receive up to 600mg a day.
Given the incidence of AP-related side effects, you and your doctor should seriously discuss any increase above 200mg a day. You’d probably know by then if it’s going to be doing something positive for you.
How to Stop Taking Asendin (discontinuation / withdrawal)
Tri/tetracyclics don’t have much of a discontinuation syndrome. Depending on why you need to stop taking it, reducing your dosage by 50–100mg a day each week should be relatively painless.

will probably have the name of the manufacturer and trademark owner (they’re not always the same company) at or near the very bottom. Or ask Google who the owner is. The way pharmaceutical companies buy each other and swap products like Monopoly™ real estate, the ownership of the trademark may have changed without my noticing. It may of changed hands by the time you finished reading this article.
