I am a little concerned they may be to strong for me. It seems everything is to strong. I usually only take a half of everything.
But they said to try it and to call if I have any problems with it.
If you want to PM me your info (like the other drugs you're taking, if any, including all over the counters, herbals, vitamins, etc) and weight, I'll be happy to look into it. 1000 mg twice daily is the maximum approved FDA dosage, so it is appropriate. The usual starting dose is 500 mg twice daily, but with the disease severity you mentioned it's not irrational to start higher. However, that drug can have some drug interactions which would warrant a lower dose, and another looksee by someone isn't inappropriate, just to be sure.

Ron has an excellent point here. Paracelsus said "the dose makes the poison" - something too much is bad, also something not enough can be equally as bad.

It's basically your generic American accent, with a spot of British pronunciation and expressions thrown in, and a bit of overly clearly pronounced letters thrown in here and there. Also, I tend to mimic the accent of the person I'm speaking with to a varying degree. With Brits and Yanks it's not so bad, but I really had to hold my tongue when I worked with a dominantly Indian team, I had a tendency to drift into this Simpson's Apu routine, which can end up sounding horribly racist. If I were to spend a prolonged period of time in an English speaking country, it would take me a couple of weeks to sound pretty alike to the general population, but my use of all kinds of expressions from different parts of the English speaking world would give me away as an imposter.
I too, love the outfits and Hagrid is spot on.
Vehve, you'd probably be offended by my Finnish accent.
