doc started me off at 40mg.... and hed had me takin it 4 times a day. Insomnia. I started doublin mornin dose so I could sleep. His taper was 10 mg a week. BUt Now on this round he has me holdin at 30 a day ( for the last 25 days ) Until things start to get better, then he will start the taper. Not sure what that will be this time. But I tend to loose weight on this drug. normally a pound every couple days ( probably the insomnia ) Now after 25 days, I'm not loosing or gaining weight, but I am getting a puffy face.
