    Question submitted during Session II of The Canine Epilepsy Summit:

    "How long after a change in dosage do you wait to see if it is making an impact before making (another) change in dosage or duration of drug?"

    - Answer provided by a Session II Panelist:

    You should wait, at minimum, the amount of time that the drug takes to reach steady state concentrations (equilibrate) in the body. This time varies between drugs.
