The recommended adult dose of ethopropazine ranges from 100 mg to 500 mg daily in 2 or 3 divided doses, with or without food.
For control of tremor and restlessness associated with some medications, the usual dose to control symptoms is 100 mg twice daily. For treatment of Parkinson's disease, the medication is usually started at a lower dose (e.g., 50 mg 3 times daily) and gradually increased until relief of symptoms occurs.
Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.
It is important to take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
