Peak Effectiveness?

Hey all,

I was wondering what the general assumption on peak effectiveness for meds was? How long at a particular dose untill you’ve gotten the most out of that dose? I’ve been fortunate to find Verapamil is working for me, and am debating the relative merits of increasing or waiting a while before increasing, but I am eager to put this to bed quickly.



For verapamil, I think I went up every month until I got to 360mg. I wouldn’t go that fast with every med, but for blood pressure meds I think its reasonable.

Thanks. I am more curious as to when you stop feeling improvements from upping the dose. i.e. its obviously not after the first day you stop feeling the improvements, and its probably before the 10th year.

Oh sorry, I guess I wasn’t reading carefully enough. About 3 months i’d say.
