I would test, dose 2x the recommended dose and then test again 24hrs later. That will tell you how much the dose is adding daily. Use that to calculate how long it will take to get you to target and adjust the dose from there. Make sure to test/dose for alk along the way or you may find yourself out of balance. Good luck!
