... same amount in each of the 7 capsules in my medminder? I have gone from 60 mg to about 20 mg since June 6th. I lowered the dose too much 2 days ago and was very sick.
Yes you can lower the dose by counting out how many beads you remove. On the support site that I used they advise to remove no more than 5 to 10 beads at a time.
What you do is remove the 5 or 10 beads to start then each day you remove 5 or 10 more. If at any time you start having side effects then you go back to the dose you took the day before and stay at that dose until you are feeling better again then you start removing beads again.
The capsules must be opened carefully or you will have beads all over so do it over a large bowl or plate.
If you need more information or have questions you can send me a private question if you want.
