    I've taken 1.5mg for years. With the snps I have I'm curious whether it might be good to
    bump my dose up a bit.

    No, but the doctor I was seeing at the time said I could go even higher if I wanted to.

    I think its mostly placebo i kept taking it and didn't notice effect at low dosages. I dont want to bother higher dosages and screw up my body.

    1.25mg (break 2.5mg tabs) for years, do not know how I would have managed without it, worked for me.

    With a lot of improvement in last 12 months have been hoping to get off it, went a couple of days without it and noticed I could manage on less sleep, woke up more clear headed but it just did not last because once my cognitive symptoms come back from exertion I have to have it, just still no biological clock 95% of time even though I have got myself to about 80%-85% functioning.

    In the beginning of cfs it helped me to fall asleep but now does very little. Currently using a 10mg slow release formula. Im uding more for its antioxidant ability.

    I take 0.625-0.75g

    I get bad headaches when I take about 2 mg or higher, it actually makes it more difficult to sleep.
