Hi there!

Four days ago, I saw a new doctor and he prescribed me the antidepressant duloxetine 30mg (once a day and for 30 days). He told me to take it in the morning time and on an empty stomach, but I'd like to start taking them closer to night time (6-7), as that is the time my brother gets home from work.
I haven't taken any of the capsules yet, so I have no idea how my body will react to them, and I don't want to be home alone in case my body reacts badly to them. I've never taken an antidepressant before, so I don't know, maybe I'm just being silly...

Do you think it'd be OK to go against what the doctor told me to do and take the medicine at night instead of in the morning time?

Oh, I have one other question... Do you think 30mg is an OK dosage for me? I'm a petite person and I've been hesitant to take these capsules, because I'm scared that 30mg may be too high of a dosage for me. Not to mention, all of the horrible side effects that could occur. I'm 25, a girl... 5'2'' and 101 lbs.

Thanks in advance :)
