I just switched GIs and this new one upped my dose from 1pill x4 a day (2000G) to 2pills x3 a day (3000G). He did it because I was having major joint pain (on July 4, I was just standing at a bbq, and after a few hours, my knees hurt so much I had to lie down for the rest of the party--it was horrible). So I've been on the upped dose now for 3 days. Haven't really noticed any improvements so far in terms of joints, but I *have* noticed I've been going to the bathroom 4-5 times a day when I was down to once a day on the 2000G.
I am going to give it another week and see how it improves. As far as other side effects, still none. No headaches or stomach aches.
(I also finally have a prescript
ion for folic acid).
