600 mg at night: Studies done used 600 mg but some patient may need more (up to 1,200mg). Remember it may develop tolerance with time. Watch & see. But get a specialized to see you

If no choice try it. Best to get a 600mg pill or 2 300 tabs but try. Because the opportunity try 400mg first then increaed to 600mg
