Initiate at 0.75 mg subcutaneously once weekly. increase the dose to 1.5 mg once weekly for additional glycemic control. if additional glycemic control is needed, increase the dose to 3 mg once weekly after at least 4 weeks on the 1.5 mg dose ().if additional glycemic control is needed, increase to the maximum dose of 4.5 mg once weekly after at least 4 weeks on the 3 mg dose..
