The maximum you can take is 2400mg per day. Some people will say 3600 but my doctor says only if you do not have an impaired liver, kidney, or other problems. You are at that limit. Of course, never do alcohol with it.
Call your doctor and let him know this is not working. I was instructed to take two tablets three times per day. It worked well for the extreme pain of shingles and lasted far longer than what you are finding. I was happy to get off of it as it affected me too much with side effects. It can cause memory loss and other problems at higher doses. And for some at very low doses.
