[e-drug] Dosing of ddI powder

E-drug: Dosing of ddI powder
---------------------------------------------

There has been a misunderstanding about the dosing of ddI powder.
Thai GPO will produce a 170 mg sachet of ddI which showed to be
100% bioequivalent to the 167 mg preparation by BMS. Most Thai
patients weigh less than 60 kg so the standard dose will be one
sachet BID. Patients weighing more than 60 kg will have to take 250
mg BID (see recommendations by US FDA www.fda.gov).
