the pill is to strong for me and i talk whit my doctor and he say to cut the pill on half and take only it is ok to do this
There is no issue at all if your Doctor told you to do it. If it is coated or sustained release you can't. I'd be inclined to believe the Doctor knows what she/he is doing.
Stephen has it correct. Most meds can be cut in half or even quartered except the sustained release
Hello I just want to add that if the pill is an extended release tablet, a medicine that releases the medication over time you can not at all split that pill. I didn't want you to get the false sense of being able to split pills and it's always safe.
