・For treatment of chronic heart failure due to ischemic heart disease or dilated cardiomyopathy: In general, for adults, start with 1/2 tablet (1.25 mg of the active ingredient) at a time, twice a day after meals. If tolerated, this dose will be increased step by step, each time after more than a week of assessment. The dose will be reduced if intolerable. Dose adjustment is made in incremental steps without exception. Single dose is usually 1/2 tablet (1.25 mg), 1 tablet (2.5 mg), 2 tablets (5 mg) or 4 tablets (10 mg). In any case, the medicine is taken twice a day after meals. The standard maintenance dose is 1 to 4 tablets (2.5 to 10 mg) at a time, twice a day after meals.
・According to your age and symptoms, you may be ordered to start with even smaller doses. Depending on how you will respond to the medicine, maintenance dose will be suitably adjusted.
・For treatment of tachycardiac atrial fibrillation: In general, for adults, start with 2 tablets (5 mg of the active ingredient) at a time, once a day. If the effect is insufficient, this dose will be increased to 4 tablets (10 mg) or to 8 tablets (20 mg) step by step, at a time, once a day. The dose may be adjusted according to your age and symptom, and maximum dose should not exceed 8 tablets (20 mg) at a time, once a day.
