BTW, back to your original question, they started me out slow, I guess to get my body adjusted to the medicine, and probably also to monitor the positive and negative effects
it had. Fortunately, I had no side effects
. It was all beneficial. I am up to 1200 mg/day. I'm not sure any higher dose would do me any good however, but up to this point, it as been a Godsend. Good luck to you!
