works well for me. I've seen that breaking the tablets are not recommended, but I now am paying 1/2 price for my dose by taking only 1/2. Is that a serious problem?
Breaking the pill may cause too much of the drug to be released at one time. It is not recommended to break extended release tabs.
Hi, as the last person commented, it isn't recommended to break a controlled release drug as it simply won't work properly.
On a seperate note, I think this is the first question i've answered about raynauds, I have this condition so it's nice to be able to give advice!
I used to take adalat (nifedipine), twice a day, but always forgot to take it twice daily, so was put on XL tabs. They worked really well, really warmed me up(!), but if i forgot to take a dose i got the worst headaches, as it messes with your BP, have you experienced this? I became quite complacent and had to stop them as the headaches were worse to bare than the coldness. Do you have it in your hands and feet (more common) or all over (like me, less common)? I hope you don't mind me asking??
