It would be predicated upon what you're treating. For example, I might prescribe an antiinflammatory dose of 0.25 mg/lb once or twice daily when addressing an allergic dermatitis but 0.5-1 mg/lb once or twice daily as an immunosuppressive dose when addressing immune-mediated disorders. Please respond with additional information and further questions or concerns if you wish.
