  • Would it be possible that mixing the two isn't a good thing? Does his Dr. know he's taking both? Maybe check with his Dr. and see what would be best to do...

  • I would guess it means he needs one in the AM and one mid day. If you give him two in the AM, it's like a double dose the first part of the day and then nothing the second half?
