Thank you Susan,

I think that your suggestion meets the scientific
test criterion of "repeatability" - perhaps I should
try that - leaving some days to pass, and see
if that happens again. I would not be surprised if
there are drug fluctuations anyway from day to day,
for a number of variables, but 1/3 of the dose
may be just enough to make a difference.

I appreciate your reply.
