Treat 2 and Treat 3 (70 and 120 units respectively of Dysport) are based on the manufacturer’s recommended dosages.
While the recommended dosage serves as a guideline based on clinical trials and expert consensus, healthcare professionals have the discretion to adjust the dosage based on individual patient factors and clinical judgment.
Patient-specific factors: Each patient is unique, and their characteristics, such as age, weight, overall health, and response to treatment, can influence the appropriate dosage. A medical professional may adjust the dosage based on these factors to ensure optimal efficacy and safety for the individual patient.
Off-label use: Healthcare professionals may prescribe a medication for an indication or in a dosage that is not specifically approved by regulatory authorities. This is known as off-label use. Off-label use may be appropriate in certain cases where the healthcare professional determines that the potential benefits outweigh the risks.
Response to treatment: If a patient has previously received a medication and did not respond adequately or experienced side effects at the recommended dosage, a medical professional may consider adjusting the dosage to achieve a better response or minimise adverse effects.
Clinical judgment and expertise: Healthcare professionals rely on their clinical judgment, expertise, and knowledge of the latest research and medical guidelines to make informed decisions about dosage adjustments. They may take into account factors such as the severity of the condition, the patient’s overall treatment plan, and their experience with similar cases.
Always consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice regarding medication dosages.
