User :   we went to a infertility centre in hyderabad today....they have advised it today morning
User :   to be strated today
Doctor :   Ok, has she taken the same any time before ?
User :   nopes
User :   she has taken letrozol few months before....abt 6 months back
Doctor :   Then i would consider the safest and recommended dosage would be 50mg once daily for five days starting from the fifth day
User :   okay
Doctor :   Letrozol is a different class of the drug with same action as Siphene, but 6 months way too long to consider
User :   so you are advising 50 mg for 5 days right?
Doctor :   and in subsequent months depending on the response to the drug in previous month the the dosage of Siphene can be stepped up to 100mg per day for 5 days
Doctor :   yes, 50mg for 5 days is ideal dosage
User :   okay thanks doctor
