I have just started 120mg of dex per day. I was initially on 40 then 80 now 120mg. This is 24 tablets a day x5mg. 40mg x 3 doses a day. I am told that the reason for this is due to Tolerance and It seems to be true "his happens because the enzymes in the liver and in the gut inactivate a greater and greater percentage of what you swallow over the weeks and months. It's the body's defence against foreign chemicals taken by mouth.

Q. Well, that's not too difficult! You need an increasing dose over time to stay where you are! And this is not addiction.' Does this go on for ever and ever so you end up shovelling tablets into you mouth?

A. No! This tolerance, this inactivation of the tablets swallowed has a ceiling. There comes a point where the gut and the liver stop trying to compete with the doctor, and the tolerance stops. The tolerance is capped!

Q. It's what?

A. It's capped! The tolerance is capped i.e. it has a ceiling so you never get anywhere near having to shovel tablets in."(http://www.adders.org/info28.htm)

I am just wondering if anyone else uses this much? Or more? or have links to documented cases? I have only been taking it for 6 months!
