... max... I have been taking it for 10 years now, It was prescribed initially after a hip replacement that went wrong..Its help hugely with the pain, unfortunately I have had to increase the dose over the years to get the relief... Now it also has a positive effect on my mood and energy levels which I badly need having a husband with a diagnosis of dementia and Parkinson's... If I don't do something now to lower my intake, I will very soon have nowhere to go with it, as 50mg more is the max dose and of course that will wear off in a few months... Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you
