To minimize the feeling of nausea that may occur during the first dose, you should increase the dose by 0.6mg/day with an interval of at least 1 week to increase the dosage to 3.0mg/day.
As the dose increases, the body will adapt to the drug and reduce nausea.
However, if the same dose does not improve for 2 consecutive weeks, please consult with the doctor.
