... after dinner . by midnight I found my reading to be in the 250 to 275 range. after 1 week of 4 testings a day I tried scrapeing off the coating on 1 of the two pills so that 1 would release earlier spreading out the dose over the 12 hours with 1 acting longer and the other quicker. my numbers have come down and more even throught the day. does this make sense. Apparently the previous dose of ER is taking too long to breakdown the coating and both are releasing at the same times, meaning less medication in the first few hours and less at the end of the dose with no over lap medication before taking the next 1000mg dose. Doses this make sense?
