hi

I've been on Effex since end of May and VERY slowly rising up to 150 mg now.

I take mine at night after dinner.

I'm TERRIBLE about pill taking and therefore for me it never even dawned on me to be exact down to the minute. It's a miracle that i remember it in +/- an hour, and that has not given me any problem I'm aware of. Twice in recent weeks at 150mg i fell asleep before taking my pill and awoke after about 5 hours in a pool of sweat -- which was the red alarm that kept me from going any longer.

I'd read here a couple of months ago that someone else's experience was even +/- 3 hrs, although i'm sure that's not ideal.

If you find that you have problems with even a half-hour of variation, I think you should mention that to your md. It could be a sign of inappropriateness, although i'm just speculating. It doesn't seem from what i've read that we should be <i>that</i> rigidly compelled by the clock and that "within the hour" should be okay.

It could also be your initial adaptation process that will "loosen up" after a couple of weeks.

Just my 2c's. Good luck.
