This cycle, neuro-doc started me at 270 mg. Wasn't enough. He told me to go to 360 mg. Was better, but still had level 5/6 HA sometimes. I asked to go higher. He said okay. 450mg seems to be my magic number. Just a few shadows now with an occasional 2/3 that I can treat with advil. I remember the last cycle 2 or 3 years ago I was taking 480mg or maybe even 600 mg per day and it worked great. Remember to taper off when (and if)you decide to stop taking it. My doc says it's okay to break the pills in half. Good luck.
