In what way is the 2nd and 3rd dose not so good?
Do you mean that they are not controlling symptoms well?

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 3 years ago.
I have asked for some clarification of the situation and have not heard back.

If you are saying that the 2nd and 3rd dose are not doing well in that the symptoms are worse later in the day, the usual approach would be to further adjust the dose. You are not yet on the maximum dose of either medicine, and as long as there are not significant side effects to the drugs, it would be OK to gradually increase the dose.

If you have any further questions, please let me know.
