I would just start like you did and work at finding your dose. Depends on how you go now and how you have gone in the past. I have seen people who only go once a week take a while to get going so be patient and diligent. =)
It took me about 3 days to get soemthing going. I was a normal pooper, once a day. The second day I got bummed that I didn't go any differently so i took a lot more that day, I can't remember really how many but it was a lot and the next day I cleaned myself out...completely... After that I cut it back to about 2-4 after each meal and it took maybe a month to get going more like twice a day. I used the steady as she goes method. Though I could tell when I went it was more I still went only once a day.
Think about how long you have let those muscles get lax. Then think about the LBB and what it is doing, excercising those muscles back into shape. That doesn't happen overnight, but you will see definite differences in amount, color and consistency. You are essentially healing your intestines and excercising them so keep taking them and increase your dose as you see fit.
Also you can do this experiment. Eat some corn then wait for it to come out. That is your transit time. The longer the transit time, the more you have to heal. A side note, these herbs will not hurt you and the opinion of herbalist is that you want to take enough of any herb to get a reaction, in this instance the reaction will be a BM and possibly a loose one. That is your max dose to work with. Taking more of them will not make you sick or hurt you. This isn't a drug so it is not toxic nor is it really dose related as every person will be different. You take what you need to get things moving in a maneer that is comfortable for you. If you don;t mind a loose BM everyday, take your max dose. If you want something more normal, then cut it back daily until you reach a point where it is still firm but coming without trouble or discomfort.
