I’m wondering if I can just take my meds at night. I can’t function taking them during the day. There has to be a way. I know people here have a similar problem.
I love my hobbies. I thought about crocheting some scarves and hats for folks are cold and hungry. Like they’re doing up north. Any option welcome.
I always take my ap meds at night only. I guess this is a question for your pdoc.
I take mine at night too. It’s just the day I guess.
I used to take my meds at night for this very reason. Back when I was getting too sleepy/irritable to function after taking them in the morning. They’ve since changed my meds, now morning meds don’t bother me. Definitely talk to pdoc. They can tell you if it’s okay to start taking them at night.
Ah I missed the last comment. That’s odd. Are you sleepy during the day?
A little. I have no appointment byet. Which is pissing me off.
That’s an admirable idea.
Making an appointment should def be one of your next steps but it sounds like something is preventing you from doing this? Are they booked or something?
Sometimes making a space and restarting is good. I have a pair of mittens a girl who liked me made for me in the nineties. I keep them but don’t wear them because they don’t keep me warm.
I have no caseworker. My last two pdoc appts were over the phone.
Im sure you can take your meds at night. Lots of meds are like that. Just gotta ask the doc. Hopefully you can get a phone call soon. My meds used to make me so tired i couldnt do anything.
I didn’t even think pdoc appts could be over the phone. They can’t be in my state anyway. But maybe that’s a state by state thing. Assuming you’re in the US.
Anyway, I got my prescriber by looking online for pdocs that take my insurance and straight up calling them. Is that something you can try? And do you have enough meds to cover you for the next few months? Sometimes getting an appointment that way takes a while.
Yeah I can start calling folks see what they can do.im just tired of being tired.
I feel that sentiment in my bones. It sucks to have to put in the work when you’re dead tired:(
I take the Clopixol shot so I only take anticolinergic meds.
I take all my psych meds at night, just cuz I got tired of sleeping 14 hours or more a day…my doc told me that was too much sleep, so now I sleep 8-9 hours a night, and I quit taking naps all the time. I have a hard time getting started at 5:30 in the morning but once I get going I do okay.
Good to hear. You’ll be alright.
I always thought you were supposed to take them at night, since they cause drowsiness.
maybe something to bring up with your dr
