When you say advantageous are you asking whether a dosage of 20 mg a day is often increased after a time?

Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

Yes

If say 20 mg isn't entirely effective after a month's time I will increase the dose to 40 mg a day

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
