    Changing the time I take it
    stemnena posted:
    Today (5/16/10) will be my last pill I take. And since its hard for me to remember to take my pill at the time I take it right now, I want to switch the time I take it. I was wondering if that was possible. Right now I take it at 5 pm and I want to take it in the morning instead. I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me. And if anyone else has done this. Thanks!
    FCL responded:
    All you have to do is take it in the morning on the first day you would have normally taken it at 5. Taking it earlier won't reduce its efficiency. I suppose you're going to keep them by your toothbrush to help you remember to take them? 5 pm can't have been an easy time to remember :)

    Yeah, its not easy. Thanks for the reply
