My son takes 72mg, and he was on 54mg, and we have some left. We only have 1 36mg left because the pharmacy shorted us 1 pill. To equal the 72mg, could I give him a 54mg, and half a 36mg to equal the 72mg for today? His dr appt is today, I just don't want him to be without his med until we see the dr.
No! They are time released and it is not safe for your son for you to do that! It probably won't hurt your son to go without for this short period of time, but if I were you I would do what I do... before I leave the pharmacy with my or my son's medication I count the pills to make sure that the right amount is there... especially if the medication is a controlled substance.
