    @KELLY SMYCZYNSKI – you need to prioritize yourself & your health! I had a similar experience when I first started medication (forgot to drink water, eat, etc.) and it’s detrimental to both your mental and physical health. In my experiences, those crashes your referring too are directly caused by lack of water & food. Remember that feeling and know it’s avoidable if you take care of yourself!

    I set “drink water” alarms several times a day that reminds me to get up and go chug a glass of water. And make myself eat something for breakfast, lunch, etc. At first, it can be hard to get “out of the zone” but just know once you sit down again you’ll get back there!

    I will say XR tends to be less noticeable since it’s “spread evenly” throughout the day so keep that in mind!

    BUT I do agree with Jenerator. If you’re not noticing any difference, and you’re not having issues sleeping/eating, I would call your doc now. You can also ask them what to do with the 20’s you have left. But maybe a slightly less responsible thing to do is keep them somewhere safe and in an emergency (insurance doesn’t cover your meds, etc.) you have a backup plan in case you’re left w/o meds for whatever reason.
