Reaching your
appropriate dose

AUSTEDO tablets are a titrated medication, meaning that your dose may be adjusted throughout the first few weeks of treatment until your doctor identifies the dose that is appropriate for you.1,2

The titration period is different for everyone. This is one reason why we say dosing for AUSTEDO is personalized. It’s important to take AUSTEDO exactly as your doctor tells you to take it.1

Once your doctor determines the dose of AUSTEDO that’s right for you, then that amount would become your ongoing maintenance dose.1,3

Checklist icon.

It’s important to track your progress using the Progress Tracker and Activity Log included in the Treatment Tracking Guide both during the titration period and with your maintenance dose, so your treatment plan can be adjusted if something changes.

Your prescribed dose may require a combination of AUSTEDO tablet strengths:
