    Is this a common side effect of missing a single dose?

    I've missed 3 dose at different occasions. All times have been my night meds. I take 75mg twice a day. If I miss the meds at night I will wake up with a headache and for most of that morning and afternoon I can't keep my eyes open at all. It's a strain right now to keep my eyes open I keep yawning. I tried to exercise to wake up but I had nothing in me. Feels like I'm fighting sleep.

    As soon as the evening comes and my noon meds have kicked in I'll start to feel normal again. But this always happens when I miss a dose.

    Yep! Don't miss any more doses! Put a reminder on your phone and carry some meds with you!

    Hi Wired

    Yes I think so. I've been on ven for years and feel awful if I miss a dose. A couple of us discussed it a while ago - see this thread for more info.

    I've been using an app to remind me to take it because I kept forgetting. There are several free ones and I'm finding it so helpful. Might be worth having a look at them so you don't forget to take yours.

    I've set alarms on the phone now to alert me. I feel like they make me far more tired than sertraline but I find they work much better. I'll take a look at that thread, thanks for digging it out.
