I have done quick 10 day bursts to quiet things down. I would start at 25 mg. for 2 days, 20 mg for 2 days, 15 mg. for 2 days, 10 mg for 2 days, 5 mg for 2 days. Sometimes that works to quickly quiet things down. I recently did that, but about a week later things started kicking up again, so I had to go back up to 25 mg and wean down 5 mg every 5 days, and that is working better for me. I do not like to go above 30 mg to start, when I do, I have alot more side effects. So give maybe 30 mg to start a try. It seems folks have more problems higher than that. Good luck!
