Age-dependent: Depends on what you are using it for, and how you are tolerating the medicine. 0.5 mg to 6 mg daily is the usual range if taken orally.

Depends: The maximum recommended dose is 6 mg. This depends on diagnosis, symptoms, medical condition, and other factors. Talk to your doctor about this as s/he know these factors about you.
