DOSAGE: Unless otherwise directed:
  Use Pertudoron 1 and 2 alternately. Take 3-5 drops of Pertudoron 1 in a little water every 2 - 4 hours. For babies up to 6 weeks old 1 drop initially, then 3 drops every 2 hours. If the illness is severe, continue throughout the night. The dosage should be precise as the success of the treatment depends on it. At the beginning of the treatment the attacks may become more frequent and more severe. Then one should reduce the dose and extend the interval between doses. The attacks will soon start to be less frequent and severe, after which one goes back to the original dosage. Frequency of dosage should gradually be reduced to twice daily before discontinuing. Following the recommended dosage easily leads to the disappearance of the acute manifestation, however the medication should continue as directed to prevent relapse.
         
COMMENT: It is essential that Pertudoron 1 and 2 are used alternatively to re-establish the disturbed breathing rythm.
