Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: When they gave me the initial level to start taking it I had no side effects that I was aware of. I was told it was a dosage belwo therapeutic and after 2 weeks they increased it. By the second day my eyes would not function together. I saw 2 images and it was like the eyes were just wandering around to look at things randomly and continuously. The 2 were not in synch at all and I had no sense of balance to even sit up in a chair without holding on to a desk or something.
