I'm taking 40mg/day (one pill once a day, not split into 2 20mgs) and at day 10 I'm experiencing all the basic side effects, just mildly. I think starting out at a low dose helps your body adjust to the medication without freaking out, and it's said that this method of treatment can help lessen the severity of an IB. I've been noticing more and more changes with each pill I take and at 150 lbs, 40mg is actually an under-dosage for me. I wouldn't worry. Chances are you'll get a higher mg scrip for next month and your body will probably be grateful for the slow build. Good luck!!
