Take one to two capsules twice daily. For optimal benefit Periogain should be started one week before periodontal treatment is initiated, and continued for three months following treatment to promote optimal healing. If challenging risk factors are an issue, we recommend a maintenance dose of one to two capsules twice daily. Risk factors would include smoking, genetic predisposition for advanced periodontal disease, diabetes or other systemic challenges.
Periogain should not be taken if you are pregnant or nursing, or if you are intending to become pregnant.
Patients taking blood thinners need to check with their physician before taking Periogain. INR (clotting time) will need to be monitored, just as with taking Periostat or low dose doxycycline.
