My dr said I can cut the pill in half (it's 10mg tablets) and take half in the morning and other half in evening. Is there an adjustment period? Will it take a few days to adjust to halving it?
They aren't scored for cutting. That usually means they can't be cut. Why didn't he just order 5 mg if that's what he wants you to take? I've found that beta blockers are better taken at bedtime for me, they make me sleepy.
The pharmacy told me you can never cut in half i am trying to get off these my legs are swollen and painful and i gain a lot of weight from these been on now for four years
