Yes, 6mp is dosed based on your weight, usually 1.0 to 1.5 mgs per kilogram of patient body weight for UC. For example, a 70 kilogram patient would get a 6mp daily dose ranging between 70 to 105 mgs a day. Typically, 6mp pills are 50mgs in size, so you'd be dosed at 1.5 or 2 pills each day.
If your body weight has significantly changed, lost or gained, then it's good to verify your doctor has adjusted your medication dosage for 6mp.
