family says it isn't working, so I put on 2, feel better, but my point is FAMILY needs to stop annoying me, not take more meds???
Hello alkmjk and welcome to DC. I will be blunt here... under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you take this med in any other way than the way it is prescribed. How does your "family" know if it is working or not??? Do not ever do that again and what is going to happen if you keep doing that and you get ill??? Is someone going to tell your doctor you have been double dosing yourself to make them happy? I don't think so... If you run out early you won't be able to get them any earlier either.
Your family doesn't know how to prescribe this med and they are not your medical professionals either - so I wouldn't listen to them. They may be just the ones that cause you to have a reaction that no one can fix.
Better yet, if "you" don't like the way a med is working talk with your doctor and get their advice. Listening to the advice of your family about this is just like walking up to a stranger and asking for their advice.
Do take better care of yourself... okay???
