Good luck on starting! I started at 10mg and my doc raised it by 10 each week as follows:
week 1: 10 mg am
week 2: 10 mg am and 10 mg afternoon
week 3: 20 mg am and 10 mg afternoon
week 4: 20 mg am and 20 mg afternoon
week 5: 40 mg am (no increase in total dosage)
week 6: 40 mg am and 20 mg afternoon
week 7: 40 mg am and 40 mg afternoon (this is where I am now)
Just an FYI I found that most pharmacies don't stock the 10 mg size and had to order it. I was irritated with my doctor at first for the slow start up but I'm glad as each time my dose went up I had some mild side effects but they always went away after the first day or so.

Good luck and let us know how it goes!
