    4ap Questions

    I started taking 4ap about 2 wks ago. I am now up to the maximum dosage prescribed...30 mg per day - 2 5mg pills 3 times a day. I have been taking it every 4-5 hours.

    Why is it that I have different reactions to it? There have been a couple times that it has enabled me to walk with almost no limp at all, but most of the time it just makes me a little shaky and off balance. I thought maybe the difference was taking it with or without food, but I have found that's not it. I'm just not sure what it can be. I hope I can figure it out so that I could walk that well every time I took it.

    Also, in reading Dr Young's info on 4ap, he says "motor function may take days or weeks to appear"...if this is something with a short-term effect, why would taking it for weeks matter? Just curious.

    Also, some days I don't find the need to take all 3 doses...if I'm just going to be sitting around the house I don't take the last one. Would that make a difference in the effects I get from it?

    Thanks

    I will ask Dr Young to respond to your questions as I don't have much experience with this medication.
