User Profile
I have been reading posts here and alot of people take there pills at night, is this the best thing to do? I was going to take mine at 12 everyday but would you reccomend night is better? I know some people get sick from it so is it better to take it before you sleep or in the afternoon?


Thanks

It is all about your preference and what makes it easiest for you to remember:) many women can remember it at night when they go to sleep, but during the busy worday may forget to take it while at work.

Take It At Night
I decided to take mine at night.. Right after I use the skin cleanser at night...It is easier to remember because night times are not hectic and busy...It's easier to remember..I haven's missed a pill yet

I agree night may be easier, and might help you remember it more, right before bed. If you know what I mean!!!

>_> I take mine in the mornings lol. They're right on top of my desk sitting next to my computer, and that's where I go first thing when I wake up! So before I go over to the bathroom I just punch one out and take it before I brush my teeth!

I take mine at 11 pm, because I know i'll always be awake then. I've never felt sick from it, but it's best when your stomach has something in it.

Heh, I don't take it at the same time every day because I wake up at different times every day! However, as long as you take the pill withing 6 hours of when you took the last one, you're fine. So say I took one at 10:30am today, and I take one at 8:30am tomorrow; i'm still fine. That's what my days are like ;)

When I was on bc (i just quit) I used to put the pills right next to my toothbrush. This way every morning, I would get up and see those pills (helped me not to forget one) and take it after I brushed.
