I went down to 1 mg/day with no symptoms of pain and really dont know why i didnt try that last 1 mg drop. fear perhaps? I figured 1 mg was pretty benign.

I agree with John that you should try 2-3 mg. You can go to 5 if you don’t get relief, but the best rule of thumb is to take the minimum amount that is necessary to eliminate your pain. With long term success at 1 mg until now, you may find that doubling it is enough.
