I believe I will stay between 2.5-3.5 mgs. Shulgin gives it a duration of 16-30, but I've seen it go as long as 60, which is putting a weekend aside.

Lesser dosages lessened the duration considerably, but also made it pretty much not worth it. A low dosage(1 mg) will pretty much just keep me awake all night with no real payoff for the trouble.

Going beyond 3.5 is just a bad idea. There doesn't seem to be any increase in intensity only duration. My one experience over 3.5 mgs was with 7. It lasted for about 5 days, got to be really difficult. In spite of the 30-60 hour time table I consider this a good teacher. Great for intense meditation sessions.

I'd consider milk thistle to help with the slight nausea. Chromium seemed to help with some of the discomfort associated with the long trip.
