Indications for use

Administration and dosage

  • The initial dose of Semintra is 1.5 mg/kg (0.68 mg/lb) orally twice daily for 14 days, followed by 2 mg/kg (0.91 mg/lb) orally once daily. The dose may be reduced by 0.5 mg/kg (0.23 mg/lb) increments to a minimum of 0.5 mg/kg (0.23 mg/lb) orally once daily to manage Semintra-induced hypotension.

The dose should be rounded to the nearest 0.1 mL. After administration close the bottle tightly with the cap. Rinse the dosing syringe with water and let air dry.
