> Thanks for the input. I've only been taking around 50mg too but my doctor wants me to up it a little since the fatigue is still pretty bad. I tried today by taking 50mg, waiting awhile to see if the fatigue got better and then taking another 50 a few hours later. Within a few hours my heart was racing and it made me way too nervous. Its a hard one to figure out. Especially since the target dose is usually around 200mg. Forget that.


the target dose is 100-200, and even though you'll see some directions to take it morning and noon, I would definitely give it 6-8 hours minimum in between doses. Anyhow, 50mg may be just fine, and if you can handle the side effects, they will subside.

It's really like super strong coffee, so your heart racing is not a surprise. In that department it is definitely more like a traditional stimulant, but as with all stimulants the body becomes accustomed quickly. The same thing happens with coffee and cigarettes I assume. I guess you can either titrate slowly or try to see if 50mg works for a while. Don't get bullied into moving up to high or too quickly though.
