Would it be okay after being on it for 3 days to go down to 200 mg. after breakfast since I've noticed it makes my sleep or lack of worse. I do not tolerate high dosages of meds. and am weaning off of trazodone 50mg. since it does not work for my sleep issues either. I have a Dr. appt. soon and would rather wait to speak to him in person. In the meantime any suggestions for safety reasons?
I would think it would be ok to go down to one 200mg capsule a day. 200mg per day is a common dose.
Hi, if you think that taking the medication once a day will be enough to control your pain, then yes, that would be perfectly fine. Generally doctors are happiest when patients are on lower doses of pain medications.
thats so confusing to me that docs prescribe antidepressants for pain. i too have some joint pain and have been prescribed more antidepressants for it. i take gabapentin for it now. it helps a lot except my toes always feel like ive stubbed them after the initial pain. like theyre numb.my doctors answer to anything is to add another antidepressant. i tried the trazodone too and it didnt help my sleep either reelwater. good luck on your doctors and god bless... john
Yes, since 200 mg is the max recommended dose per day.
Always contact your Doctor BEFORE decreasing you medication. The doctor who prescribed your medication presumably knows your medical history and may recommend either a lesser dose or prescribe a different medication that will have less effect on your sleep.
I have a severe case of Anklyosing Spondylitis (AS). Amongst other things, I take 800mg Ibuprofen in the morning after breakfast and again in the evening after supper. This is a high does but it helps me with pain and stiffness.
