Hi there

Maximum dose of this medication is 10-mg three times daily. You are only taking 10-mg once daily. Yes, you can increase it to 10-mg three times daily, best if you clear it with your doctor who might have a reason why he/she recommended it as once daily. But I would NOT advise you to take 20-mg, all at once. That is not recommended
