The bottle says take 2 at night and one in the morning but i feel like that is innefective timing and would leave me low on medication levels by night time. I was previously taking 1.5 in the morning and 1.5 at 4 pm.
If the dr orderd it that way, then take it that way. This drug is supposed to be taken twice a day, not three times. I really wanted to give you the classic mom answer,because I said so, lol... This med has the ability to make you sleepy so the dr will have the heaviest dose at night. If the drug needs to be increased then it would be the morning dose. Most medication need to be taken a certain way, and we can't decide it isn't right, when the dr orders it and the pharmacist didn't question it.
