In brief: Follow inscructions

First and foremost, follow your prescribing doc's instructions.
..Sometimes doc will start you on a higher dosing, then taper down. Unlike ammiodarone, you do not need regular bloodwork...But your doc may want bloodwork done for other reasons (check liver function, kidney function, etc.).
