Okay I called my expert TaP users that I keep on a family retainer. My aunts!
Mild hyperT is treated with 15 mg - 3x daily
Mod hyperT is treated with 30-40 mg - 3x daily
Severe hyperT is treated with 60 mg -3x daily
A good starting dosage is 0.4 mg * body weight in kilograms divided by three. This is the treatment regime used for pediatric patients. I can convert your weight from lbs to mg if you need me to...
Occasionally treatment results in periods of remission. During these periods you need to stay on a 5-15 mg dose a day.
20 mg is a good starting point.
You can get your first blood work tested as early as two weeks. My aunts recommend your first tests at 2, 4, and 8 weeks. Then in 4 week intervals until stable. Bounce stable you should evaluate every 8-12 weeks or when symptoms arise. I think I have all the info here.
One is a nurse so she got all technical on me. I hope I handled it alright.
