I was originally taking peri-colace 100mg 3 times a day, but since they quit making it I've been taking the generic docusate sodium 100mg tablets 3 times a day. The directions say to take them all in one dose or spread out over the day. I take one in the morning, one midday, and one before bed.

I went to the drug store the to get a new bottle, but they didn't have the kind I'd been getting. Instead they had another brand that comes in 250mg tablets, and says to take one a day.

I've only got a few days of the 100mg tablets left, and if they don't get my regular kind in before I run out, I'll have to get the 250mg tablets. My question is, since it says to take one tablet a day, when is the best time to take it? I do my BP first thing in the morning.

Learn from the mistakes of others, you won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.
