The cumulative dose is what's important, not your daily dose. You could take 20mg per day with arguably the same efficacy so long as you reach the 125+mg/kg cumulative dose.

a "normal" daily dosage for 82kg would be 40 - 80 mg/day. Sometimes more, but that is the normal range.

As porad said, you're looking for a cumulative dose of 125 - 150 mg/kg. How long it takes to reach that depends on daily dose. A traditional dose has been 1 mg/kg/day. That would reach the goal in 125 days or about 4 months - which by coincidence! is the traditional length of therapy that was used before the cumulative dose thing was discovered.
