Phase 1: Titrated Dose
The titration period is different for everyone. This is one reason why we say AUSTEDO dosing is personalized. It’s important to take AUSTEDO exactly as your doctor tells you to take it.1
Phase 2: Maintenance Dose
Once your doctor determines the dose of AUSTEDO that’s right for you, then that amount would become your ongoing maintenance dose.1,3

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.
