In brief: See below
The usual max dose is 3 DDAVP tablets, or 2 squirts in each nostril for the nasal spray.
It is imperative that fluid restrictions be utilized in order to prevent water intoxication, seizures, etc, especially if used at max dose nightly.

In brief: DDAVP (desmopressin) is very safe
However 0.
6 mg, or 3 x 0.2mg tablets is the most worth taking because there appears to be no additional effect by taking more.
