My endo wrote for 500mg 3x a day. I'm picking it up tomorrow. Are you supposed to eat every time you take it? How much is the minimum you can eat? For the time being I am very limited on what I can eat, I'm having throat problems, I'm living on yogurt, milk softened cereal, mashed potatoes and smoothies. I choke on everything else and can't tolerate meat. Also can they be cut in half? They are NOT extended release. Thank you for your help.
They recommended you eat after every meal or during. I have only just started on these myself and I eat half my meal and then take the tablet with a whole glass of water and finish of my meal after that. You may want to speak to those who you are picking your tablets up from with the best options. :)
