Your doctor will start you on once-a-day Trokendi XR with a plan to increase your daily dose over time.
Gradually increasing the dosage over a period of 4 weeks will help your body adapt to the medicine. It may also help reduce the risk of side effects. Your doctor will work with your individual needs to help you achieve the right dose for migraine prevention.
The recommended daily dose of Trokendi XR for migraine prevention is 100 mg/day. This is typically achieved over a 4-week dosing schedule. See example below.
It is important to take your daily dose of medicine as prescribed. Do not stop taking once-a-day Trokendi XR without talking to your doctor.
