Do you mean that you take 1 in the morning and 2 at bedtime? If so, yes that is fine.
If you take 1 in the afternoon and 2 at bedtime, and this is working for you, then it's fine. But you would probably get better results by taking one in the morning (even late morning) and 2 at bed.
Bernie; Yes you want to take it just as the doctor has said, Not how others are taking theres if it gets to where it seems like it is helping you there is room for dose increase if needed. Many people do real good on this medication. We are all different and how the medication works for us they normally do give the higher dose at bedtime so if it makes you sleepy. But you want to try and take this the same way and time each day to help keep a good blood level. Best of luck. and hope this finally gives you some relief.
