I'm currently on 30mg of Cymbalta once a day. I take it in the morning. After 3 more doses I'm going up to 60mg once a day. I'm taking it for depression and anxiety. It knocks me out about an hour after I take it. I'm extremely sleepy and drowsy for about 8 hours after my dose. I want to change my dose to at night before bed. I already took a dose at 5am this morning. Should I take another dose tonight to get on the night regimen? Or should I skip tomorrow's am dose and start taking it at night tomorrow?
How should I handle changing my Cymbalta dose from morning to night?

When I was taking 30mg I had the same effects. So changed to nights. Now 3 weeks on 60 mg I can not sleep. I am thinking about trying to change to morning.
Hi, seasunshine! Take a dose this evening and then you can just skip tomorrow morning's dose.
