Adults: The recommended initial dose is 10 mg. The dose may be increased to 20 mg after 1-2 weeks, depending on the clinical effect. In patients who previously have tolerated oral β2-agonists well, the recommended initial dose is 20 mg.
In patients with an impaired renal function (GFR ≤ 50 ml/min) the recommended initial dose is 5 mg, which may be increased to 10 mg after 1-2 weeks, depending on the clinical effect.
