HI Ashok

Thanks for posting your query.

I went through your query and I can understand your concern. Unknowingly you have taken 250cr instead of 125 cr and that is giving you good effects but on 125cr you are not finding the effect which you got it on 250. Well that is very obvious because it is low dose .

But see Ashok , the human body will develop tolerance to these medications with time . Hence the principle of treatment is to start with low dose and gradually escaltion in dose if there is no improvement or deterioration.

If you start taking 250cr from now only you may feel great initially and after few months your body will develop tolerance for that too . In that case further escalation of dose or addition of new drug has to be done.

With increase in dosage or addition of new drug , the chances of side effects also increase which may affect your quality of life .

Hence my recommendation is to continue with 125cr only for few more months , if there is detereoration of symptoms consult your doctor again . He himself shall increase the dose to 250 but till then continue 125cr only .

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarifications feel free to ask .

Regards.
