I agree with the others about starting slow. No matter what the insert says, my experience for myself is that it is often a good idea to start slower, because some people (like myself) need time to adjust to the med. Also, since this med is so new and doctors don't have experience with it, it would make sense to start slow, in case someone had a reaction to it.

A second possibility, as you've mentioned is that at the same time you are adjusting to a new med, you are also adjusting to not being on your previous AD. It could be hard to separate out the effects.

But also (and I am not sure how much it matters), but when I saw the weight info, I had to pull out my calculator because it didn't look right to me--I believe 120 lbs is the equivalent of about 54 kilos, which puts you well under 70 kilos. 70 kilos is equivalent to more than 150 lbs.
