That is pretty common with meds that change the body response. The body tries to resume its normal activity and frequently does. Side effects go away. ...Read more

Furthermore, the standard dose is 0.6 mg and it is questionable if 0.3 mg would be efficacious in a person with normal functioning kidneys. It would be best to talk with your doctor about this. ...Read more
