... naturally a night owl and stay up late and then sleep into the day. Of course sometimes I have appointments in the morning hours so I have to go to bed earlier so I can be up for them. My question is when they say bedtime, do they actually mean before you lay down to sleep no matter what that time is or do they mean that it should be taken every day in the evening hours?
Should I be taking it around the same time every evening or should I be taking it when I am ready to sleep no matter what that time is? Thanks in advance for any help
They mean in the evening at around the same time. If a dr orders a med given at bedtime a nurse would put it down for the late med pass usually around 9 pm.
