I started yest at 5 o'clock with 1mg. I felt no relief after approx an hour so I took another 1mg. and felt relief and did not feel the need to take any more. I did not sleep well... itchy all over and dry mouth. I woke up at 8:30 and started to feel uncomfortable by 9:30 so I took 1mg. How should I continue through the day?
Amber dear... did you see my first post to you today? I think you are trying way too hard to be on the lowest dose possible. 2 mg is a VERY low dose. I am on 2mg twice a day and it is STILL a low dose. I DO understand that you want to be on the lowest dose possible... it sounds from yesterday that 2 mg may be your number... so... take another 1 mg and c what happens... how u feel in 20-30 minutes. If you don't feel better then take another 0.5 mg... and so on until you feel better. Once you feel better for the day, then evaluate how you are feeling throughout the day... don't take too late in the day. The reason you could not sleep is because you took it too late. I cannot BElieve that your doc did not instruct you on this. The dry mouth is normal and should resolve in a few days. I am in a doc's appointment right now... so gotta go but will be available ALL day... so stay with me until you feel better. As I said in my earlier post of the day...
Robert is on the forum and is more knowledgeable than I but I DO believe that he would agree with me 100%
PLEASE get back with me when u have done this... I am here for u...
You should only dose twice daily. If another 1mg works that is great. Try to dose at the same time each day. You should take another 1mg late this afternoon. Let me know if that works for you as the initial induction process takes normally a few days to get your dosing totally adjusted properly. You can also go to the discussion forum on this site and post directly to me there. I've done this a thousand times with people.
