Great advice by VVALL. The other thing to keep in mind is that everybody is different. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to medication. Doctors should start off slow and then listen to their patients. 15 mgs is a mid sized dose. It should last for about 8 to 10 hours. One good indication of to low a dose is it not lasting long enough. The more information you can give you doc the better. Chart when you start to notice the med wearing off. If you can go in with concrete examples, there is a much better chance the doc will listen to you.
