The recommended dosage for Amiridex is 1 mg tablet to be taken once a day by mouth.
Here are some general guidelines:
- It is safe to take with or without food.
- It is best to take Amiridex at around the same time every day.
- If you miss a dose, you should take it as soon as you remember; although, if you are close to time for your next dose, you should just skip the missed dose and continue your schedule as usual.
- You should not take a double dose to make up for a missed dose.
The effects of overdosing on Amiridex are not clear. Women in studies tolerated high doses without any known problems. Still, if overdose is expected, a poison control center or emergency room should be contacted immediately.
