The doctor has prescribed me this dose for over 7 years. Medco fills it (after a pre-auth). I would NOT take the dose on purpose without the doctor knowing but if you have been taking the 12.5 for a while 2 will not bother you too much. Remember the more you take, the longer it takes to stop. It is taking me forever to taper off of this with the doctor's help.
