3 mg?

Dr Vikas :

The usual dose range of Rivotril is from 2-6 mg per day

Customer:

ok

Customer:

if i take 6 mg

Customer:

is it ok?

Customer:

and do that work

Dr Vikas :

Rivotril (Clonazepam) can be taken for dissociative disorders provided your doctor is ready to prescribe you this medicine.

Customer:

for short term just

Dr Vikas :

6 mg per day can be very sedative.

Customer:

or for short and long term?

Customer:

what that mean?

Dr Vikas :

we usually prescribe either .25 or .5 mg once or twice day

Customer:

ok

Dr Vikas :

in most cases, 1 mg per day is usually sufficient.

Customer:

so how much i can take for fugue

Dr Vikas :

but the dose can be further increased if needed.

Customer:

because it help me remember

Dr Vikas :

as I mentioned earlier, .25 mg three times a day can be a good option.

Dr Vikas :

or .5 mg two times a day.

Customer:

if i take 2 mg dialy?

Dr Vikas :

depends on your doctor what he or she likes

Customer:

1 mg twice?

Customer:

she ask me too

Customer:

she told me that

Customer:

but she didnt tell how much max to take/

Dr Vikas :

if she asked you to take 2 mg in a day, it can be taken in my view.

Customer:

?

Dr Vikas :

better to try with low dose and then increase it slowly if needed.

Customer:

ok

Dr Vikas :

we usually tell our patients to start with .75 or 1 mg per day and then increase it by .25 or .5 mg if needed.

Customer:

ok

Customer:

is it work for short term

Dr Vikas :

please go through the two links I have given above.

Customer:

or i can get benfits for long too?

Dr Vikas :

yes, Rivotril is usually prescribed for few weeks

Customer:

so i get more benifits for long?
