EGR -- I bet it will be a little stressful no matter how you do it. But sounds like you're no stranger to medication juggling, and willing to try it or you wouldn't have asked for ideas.

If it were me (it's not, this is your day we're talking about) I would wait until I had two or three consecutive days off (a weekend for most of us.) Friday morning, take 15 mg instead of 20. Friday night, take 10. Saturday morning, take 10mg, Saturday night, take 15 mg. Take none Sunday morning, and take 20 mg Sunday night. Or something similar. Just watch your 24-hr dosage (any consecutive morning and evening, or evening and morning, no less than 15 or more than 25 mg, if your usual dose is 20 mg. (The 10 mg tabs cut OK with a butter knife if you hold both sides of the pill with thumb and index finger, then press on the pill's score line with the butter knife held with opposite hand, it's blade between your thumb and finger of the hand holding the pill. Hold pill with one hand, cut with other. Hope that made sense.)

But, then, I might take a more kamikaze approach (not recommending it, just being honest) and Friday morning take 10 mg, Friday night 10 mg, Saturday morning nothing, Saturday night 20 mg. I'm too impatient for my own good sometimes.

I also have noticed if I get home late (work too late or stay at a friend's too late) that I get a little negative if I don't take it on time. But it's nowhere near what I felt like before I started taking it, and I can always just go to bed and not inflict my mood on anyone.

Best of luck to you!

> I think I'd like to start taking my Lex at night. I usually take it around 8:00 a.m. and notice that if I'm very late, I tend to be quite negative for awhile ("and just why would that happen?" she ponders, "if it stays in your system?")
> How would you suggest switching from a.m. to p.m.? I take 20 mgs a day (2-10 mgs).
