IT VARIES: Xeloda (capecitabine) is usually dosed at 825 - 1250 mg/m2 twice daily x 14 days depending on regimen used. It can be given alone, with radiation or with other chemotherapy drugs. To calculate dose we use Body Surface Area (BSA) x mg to get actual dose. I assume you are saying 3300 mg total daily dose. For example: 1800 mg in am + 1500 mg in pm - sounds right. Talk to your Oncologist too.
