Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

This depends on the medication that you are taking. Some of the anti depressants have sedative side effects in which case your doctor may not recommend to take them in the morning. You may then take them regularly from the next night dose.

Please do not miss the daily dosage since this will lead to ineffective treatment and also sometimes lead to withdrawal symptoms.

Take care.
