I have never taken more than 40 mg as one dose. If I am on 40 mg or less I take it all in the morning so I can sleep. If I am on 60 mg, my doctor would have me take 40 mg in the morning before 9 am and 20 mg before 6 pm. He said this would hit the 2 natural peaks people have. Then when I would start to taper I would taper the night dose first until I was down to 40 and back to just a morning dose.
