Haha yes my roommate has to do 18 and 18 because 36 at once didn’t work well for him. It’s just the way you feel the concentration curves in your body from going from low concentrations of the med to higher. If you go higher all at once, you won’t have that second bounce-up so-to-speak, so many people feel that is less effective because it’s just one giant hike up versus two moderately leveled ones. Same for all medicines when you do micromanaging.
