Cravit used to be marketed in 100mg tablet. Then the 250mg tablet became available. However the dosage recommendations for the two strengths are quite different.

For the 100mg packing, the dosage recommendation ranges from 100mg to 200mg, given 2 to 3 times a day, depending on the types of infection.

However, the dosage recommendation for Cravit 250mg is based on a single daily dose regimen. Details may be obtained from the attached document (PDF).

According to the supplier Daiichi Pharmaceutical, the dosage of the 250mg tablet packing is the latest recommendation.
