My dr gave me an interesting analogy about how different people respond to pstims. This was actually in regard to ADD people vs. "normal" people. He said that normal (i.e. non-ADDers) will respond initially to a low dose of pstims with a little more energy and focus than they normally would. As you increase the dosage, their reaction continues to increase along with it until you get to a point where the person is agitated and can't take any more. In other words the response is linear. He said that if you give pstims to a person with ADD that at a dose below what is therapeutic for them they don't feel anything. As you raise the dosage to a therapeutic level then the reaction is like a light switch being turned on. There's not a gradual response but a sudden one when the right dosage is reached. In my case my pdoc started me on 10 mg/day of dexedrine spansules and has me increasing by 10 mg/day each week. I'm only on 20 now and can't even tell that I'm taking anything.
