> How long was it before you saw any effect from the 1.0 mg dose and how long did the improved effect take from your increased dosages?
It took about 5 days to have an effect with each dose increase, maxing out in about 2 weeks. Therefore would not increase further until at least 2 weeks have gone by at a given dose. Start with 0.25 mg twice a day for 2-4 weeks, then increase to 0.75 mg a day for another 2 weeks, then 1.0 mg, with further increases of 0.5 mg every 2 weeks as tolerated. Split the doses into two or three.
