Megace ES Dose
The recommended dose of Megace® ES (megestrol ES) is the same for everyone -- 625 mg per day. This is equal to 5 mL or 1 teaspoonful a day. Make sure to use an accurately measured measuring spoon, medicine cup, or oral syringe to measure your amount, rather than a household teaspoon.
This prescription medication comes as a liquid that is swallowed. Megace ES is approved to help stimulate appetite and cause weight gain in people with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
