So the letter came. My current favourite doctor at Nairn, Dr Lee Smith, got a copy before me and the recommendation is to up the dose by 300mg at a time, waiting at least 2 weeks between increases until I reach a maximum dose of 1500mg twice a day, experience "intolerable side effects", or become seizure free.  read more ...
