........whatever dose provides the best balance between efficacy and side effects for YOU! :-)
>Elizabeth had enduring problems with it that way, so I guess that worried me. But on the reduced dose (circa 0.1 mg), so far no problem. In fact I think I'll hold off on buying the Reglan unless I actually develop constipation.
I wouldn't recommend taking Reglan to treat constipation - it's unlikely to be effective and it generally causes more side effects than laxatives.
>I'm shocked. Bad experience with Haldol, so I think I'll pass, LOL.
What dose did you take? How did you find it? Haldol tends to be very unpleasant at high doses but tolerable at small doses - at least in the short term. Haldol is very similar to Compazine - a widely prescribed antiemetic and neuroleptic. Low doses are used to treat nausea/vomiting.
