What are the time frames for medications? If I have 3 morning pills I take at around 10AM and I don't wake up until 5pm should I still be taking those pills? Or should I wait until the next day where I don't wake up at a crazy hour? My sister (nurse) says consistence is the most important part of taking medications but that's not always easy.
Medication list: buspar, saratonin, effexor.
Is it possible to switch the time you take them to always at 5 PM? I know they recommend taking some early in the day due to certain side effects such as insomnia, etc, but if you are sleeping until 5 PM (I too do this sometimes) then usually you aren't going to bed until much later so the side effects may not be a factor. Basically, I agree with your sister, taking them at the same time everyday is best. If you know for sure you will take them at 5 PM, start that schedule and stick to it.
Set an alarm and get up and take them. That's the easiest thing to do. Do you work weird hours or something. What is the second one. There is no drug serotonin, that is a chemical in your brain. If you only take them all once a day, then the trick is to take them 24 hrs apart, not a particular time of day.
