nibblerd Posted December 20, 2010 Share Posted December 20, 2010 This is my third week on LTG. During the first week I took 12.5mg at night with my lithium and ziprasidone. I felt fairly tired, exhausted actually, but we attributed this to depression rather than the drug. During the second week, I took 25mg at night. I had fatigue but wasn't as somnolent as the previous week. Now on the third week, I quickly learnt that I cannot take all 50mg in the evening. It is extremely activating and I have a difficult time falling asleep if I do this. In fact, I won't sleep at all without some sleep aide, be it Imovane, Restoril, or Benadryl. Because of this, I switched to split dosing. 25mg with my morning lithium at 8:30-9am, and 25mg with my evening lithium at 8:30pm. I feel somewhat sleepy during the day, but my evening dose makes me feel.. not tired at all. So, I considered taking all of it in the morning, but I'm afraid that it will be tiring rather than activating. I've also thought of taking one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Has anyone else had to mess with dose timing like this, or am I the first? I guess it's a hugely personal thing and I'll never know for sure what works best until I play around with it to see what works.. but I'm still interested in other people's experiences.
