Kivexa in the morning and Stocrin at night?
Jul 11, 2013

Hi again doctor, in the case I start taking both pills at the same time (Both Kivexa and Stocrin in the night before going to bed instead Kivexa in the morning and Stocrin at night), how do I do that safely? Should I skip the pill of the morning (Kivexa) to take it at night? Or should I take the one of the morning and take it again at night?. In the first case the drug would dangerously decrease and in the second case the drug level would increase. Which one is worse? Or which one is safer? Thank you very much again!

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

No need to over think this-- when you decide to start taking your pills together, just take them both at the same time in the evening (with your Stocrin). I wouldn't be concerned abou the single ~36 hour dosing interval for Kivexa.

Hope that's helpful, BY
