Neurosurgeon Kim Kyung Soo commented on the average dosage, "If a person takes one pill a day it is 5mg and 10mg. In more severe incidents, it's about 2 pills."

Mr. Kim also mentioned, "Similar side effects like that [of T.O.P 's case] can occur if a person ingests 20 pills or more."

Meanwhile on June 9, T.O.P transferred hospitals, leaving the ICU at 2:30 PM KST. He's looking to receive psychiatric treatment at a different hospital with private facilities.
