Your advice and wisdom are truly appreciated. I already had it my head that if needed I’d only go up 50mg if my levels don’t come down enough on 100mg, at least until I have a month to see how that worked. I’m secretly hoping 100mg will do the trick, but I’m if not I’m really hoping it’ll be less than 300mg. I hate taking medication of any sort, and I really want to minimize the stress on my liver and kidneys.

Just to be clear, once levels have dropped and crystals have had time to dissolve, I’m looking to stay anywhere between 5-6 mg/dL? Is anything under 6 considered to be too low for crystal formation/accumulation?
