I am currently reducing from 5 mg to 4.5 mg and this week have been using the 2.5 coated tabs. + 1mg x2 of non coated I am in the habit of taking my dose at about 7.30am then staying in bed for about 40 mins before getting up. If I do this I feel ok. If I try and get straight up after taking my dose I feel giddy and quite odd / unwell. I guess this is because my body needs the dose to be in my system for a while. The days I have taken the coated tabs I have not felt well when I have got up. My conclusion is that i am able to absorb the non coated tabs much more quickly. I have decided not to continue with the coated ones because of this. Will have to cut tabs instead ..... which is fiddly but ok! This info may be useful for others ? I always feel at my worst first thing am and now generally feel ok later in the day.
