5 mg/kg every 8 weeks is the "standard" dose. If that doesn't work, it can be increased to 10 mg/kg or the schedule changed to every 6 weeks.
Also, not everyone notices a difference right away. It can take up to five infusions for it to really take effect in some people. I'd encourage you to be patient and see if it kicks in for you in the next 4 to 6 weeks.
