You need to speak yo your doctor about the dosage your on and if it is not effective maybe you should try something else. I am sure the doctor will work with you to keep your dos low if the lower dose works and if not let him/her know it is not working so you can up your dose or try something different.
You did awesome going from 120mg to 2.5mg! I am really impressed:)
