    Penicillamine has been successfully reintroduced and continued for a minimum of 13 months in 5 patients who developed proteinuria during the first course of the drug. The daily maintenance dose during the second course was 150--250 mg taken midway between 2 meals. Proteinuria did not recur; no significant excretion of fibrin degradation products occurred; complement, urea, creatinine, and serum albumin remained within normal limits. Urine microscopy showed no abnormality.
