  • I had one once that said take 2....I took them both at once. I would call and ask a dr or pharmacist in the morning just to be sure. :)

  • Call to check, but it might make you sick to your stomach to take that much at one time.

  • there's a reason to take 3 a day and taking more then that might do harm to not just your stomach but you kidney's and liver as well

  • For vitamins, I just take all at once. If I don't, I'll forget.

  • It might decrease the effectiveness, if say, they only last 8 hours, and you need to take them throughout the day. If you take them all at once, you're just wasting them.

  • I would not take three at a time, I would spread it out with meals.
