Thanks for all your input. Right now I'm trying to take it at about 6 am and then at 11 am. I just can't seem to tolerate all 75 mg at once. And since the half-life begins at about 5.5 hours, I figure if I take it 5 hours later, it should remain pretty steady in my system. Also I don't want to take it more than 11 hours before my bedtime because that's the supposedly the longest half-life, if I remember correctly. And I do go to bed at 10 PM.

I just started doing this and feel kind of weird so far so I'm not sure if it will work but I sure hope so. I did notice last night before sleep I felt kinda depressed. Actually I've noticed this a couple of times. So I may have to either try taking 37.5 mg 3x/day or go back to taking it every 12 hours.

Anyone have any suggestions? I just dunno how to take this stuff! LOL Thanks so much and take good care! I hope to hear from someone shortly.
