Even though it' only 3 mg, I can't help but view it as a 50% dose increase! Jumping to 5 seems to make little sense to me, especially when you hear over and over how strong so many people find 2 mg.

Thank you! You make a wonderful wireless router : )

I must admit, I like the 5 mg pills, though I'm still searching for a good name for that color. "Mudless Puddle?" Something tells me paint stores would have a hard time moving that. Maybe the 10 mg pills will be a deeper blue, something that will really make my eyes pop.
