Brief Answer:
Yes, you can!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

You can take both packets at the same time. Another option is to split into two. But with just 2packets daily, there is really no reason to get worried that much splitting into multiple daily intakes.

I wish you well. Keep me posted and feel free to ask for clarifications if need be.

would you recommend taking the 2 packets together? I also take Cymbalta and the Dr said to take questran 2 hours after eating (9:00 PM) and then take the Cymbalta in the morning.
