Directions For Use

Directions for Use

Steady state serum concentrations are not reached until 1-2 weeks after treatment is
initiated. The full effect of the medication does not appear for two weeks and doses
should not be increased during this time.
If seizures are not being controlled, the dosage may be increased by 20% at a time,
with associated monitoring of serum phenobarbital levels. The phenobarbital serum
concentration may be checked after steady state has been achieved, and if it is less
than 15?g/ml the dose may be adjusted accordingly. If seizures recur the dose may be
raised up to a maximum serum concentration of 45?g/ml. High plasma concentrations
may be associated with hepatotoxicity. Blood samples could be taken at the same time
to allow plasma phenobarbital concentration to be determined preferably during trough
levels, shortly before the next dose of phenobarbital is due.
For accuracy of dosing, dogs under 12 kg should commence therapy with Epiphen
solution.
Tablets are not intended to be subdivided.
