I agree with Isaac that you would probably want to claim a range of dosages.  More particularly you might want to claim a range of dosages per unit weight of patient with a certain frequency.
 
You might have clinical data indicating that beyond a certain dosage range, additional X is ineffective or has an increased probability of undesirable side effects.  That sort of information would help support an upper bound for the dosage claim.
 
Additionally, because a much lower dosage is effective there may be methods of administering X that would have not been practical if a 200 mg dose were required.  That could be the basis for some claims too.
