Starting increased dosage tomorrow

Recommended Posts

I am starting below dosage tomorrow.. 2 40 mg pills per day. In the first month I only took 1 per day. Should I take them at the same time, or one in the morning and one at night? Does it matter? It may not matter at all, but I just want to see what other ppl's opinions are. Thanks,..

yea you should be splittingyour dose, say one 40mg pill in morning and one 40mg pill at lunch, makes it easier for you liver to metabolize by decreasing amount it has to do at one time

my doc and pharmacist said split for sure.....

you might get lots of side effects by doubling your dose. When I went from 40 to 60mg a day the nose bleeds started again for a week until my body got used to it again.

If I took it all at once (especially 80mg's at one time), my head would probably explode inside and I'd probably have nosebleeds all night!
