Don’t take your pill with anything acidic, and don’t drink anything acidic until about an hour after taking it, maybe longer.
That means no morning fruit juice, no cola, no sparkling water. Milk, water or tea only. Acids affect the release of your meds.
Is there definitely no way you could increase your dose a LITTLE? For example, you have the 10mg XR I’m the morning, and take an instant release in the evening, after work? Or could you take your pill later in the day?
It’s a good idea to have a word with your specialist and see if there are any additional options for you, given that your treatment isn’t working in all areas of your life that you need it to.
