I would guess that you need a higher dose. 20mg a day isnt that high. But your doctor is the one you should talk to about this.

Doctors very indifferent in turkey. They never even checked my body. I want to do my tests myself. I plan to gradually increase my doses but I wonder if I get 20 mg at once to see the result? Maybe it is useless.

10 is really low, you could try 20

When I was diagnosed my dr had me test 10, 20 and 30 gradually, to find the right dosage.

If I recall correctly, Ciba is the best brand.

todey i used 13mg at one time but nothing happened. i keep thinking while working.


if my medicines are acting, will my mobility end? continuous leg shake, continuous hand movements...
will I understand that the drug is effective?

i will continue to increase the dose.

That's what I meant. I have no idea where Ciba came from.

Even though I drink 30mg at once, my pulse is normal.
