    Best talk to your Dr about this.   If your anxiety gets too high perhaps they can give you something to deal with this instead of upping you Ven meds. Cover all your bases but do it with your Doc. Enjoy your day.....

    You probably need to give it 2 weeks, to be sure if its a blip or not. Your 75mg immediate release at night seems weird? Have we had that conversation before?

      i personally would say just miss the one night and start the next day. But definitely talk to your doctor first. The reason why you should take it in the morning is that the effectiveness is highest for the first 12 - 15 hours after taking it. So in the day when u are awake would be best smile x

      Stacey. Its best if you spoke to a pharmacist regarding when you should take your meds. They have studied about this kind of styff and they know best.
