Well, after a couple of telephone calls to my neurologist and a reduction in the dose to one-half a tablet, I think we are on the right path. I took the reduced dose for 6 days and I had no headaches. So, today I upped the dosage to one pill. This is where I was supposed to start. I have also changed my dosage time to first thing in the morning instead of at night, just before bed. I also think this is part of the beneficial effect. My plan is, to take one tablet for a week, then increase to one and a half. Finally getting to the two pills dosage in a couple of weeks. This is slower than the neurologist wanted but I think I will tolerate it better. Since I take so many meds, my body is just about at it's limit, in my opinion. Yes, I know I did not go to medical school, but I do know how my body reacts.
The one thing I am a bit aggravated about is the slow speed that my new neurologists office replied. Again, I know they are busy, but when I call with one of the "Serious" contra-indications of the medicine as outlined on the sheet the Pharmacy gave us, I would expect the doctor to reply to me in an expeditious manner!! Just my opinion.
