I am on my 5th day of 37.5mg and was supposed to double my dose on day 3. Within and hour and a half of taking it, I'm pretty "high" but not enjoyably. It thins out by late afternoon, but in 12 hours I guess the time release kicks in and I'm really speedy. The doctor's response was to suggest switching to something else, but I had high hopes for it. I was thinking of trying half capsules for a few days and then maybe end up at 37.5 as my final dosage. I realize this is a small dose. Anyone else have similar experiences? Should I just try and ride it out?

This effect won't last. You're Already taking the smallest dose at, 37.5. I don't remember when i first started it, if i.felt high or not. You could take the small dose for a few more days then up it again. It will take about a month for you to feel any effect..

Hi, Im starting 37.5 today so Im researching the med extensively. From what I read it is NOT safe to break a time released med in half, and as already stated, 37.5 is the lowest dose. I think (hope) the effects wear off for you, it takes time for your brain/body to adjust.
