Are sure, you are taking 19-mg? .. it comes in 10, 20 mg only. Are to start 10 mg once daily for 1-3 weeks, then change to 20 daily if the first does is well tolerated. You need to check the exact does on the package ?

You should recheck with your doctor in AM. There might be an error in the dosage. If you are to take two 20mg tablets, that would be excessive.

Check the exact dose and check with your doctor office in AM about the exact instruction before you proceed with the change.
