    Dosage

    Predominantly negative episodes: Doses between 50 mg/day and 300 mg/day are recommended. Doses should be adjusted individually. The optimum dosage is about 100 mg/day. For patients with mixed positive and negative symptoms, doses should be adjusted to obtain optimal control of positive symptoms.
    Acute psychotic episodes: Initiating treatment: It is possible to start via the IM route for a few days, at a maximum dose of 400 mg/day, switching thereafter to oral treatment. Oral doses between 400 mg/day and 800 mg/day are recommended. The maximum dose should never exceed 1200 mg. Given that there has been no large-scale safety assessment of doses higher than 1200 mg/day, these doses should not be used.
