Kemadrin Dosage

In most cases, the recommended starting Kemadrin dosage is 2.5 mg three times daily (after meals). However, this dosage will vary based on several factors, such as the medical condition being treated, how you respond to Kemadrin, other medical conditions you have, and other medications you are taking. If you tolerate Kemadrin well, your healthcare provider may increase your dosage.
