... swallowing it, as I get choked or it gets stuck in my throat. Is it O.K. to cut it in half? I do not know if it is the ER or not. (It is not a capsule)
If it is the ER form the instructions I have explicitly state to NOT break, crush, or chew.
When my Dr changed my dosage to 1000mg, he prescribed it as two 500mg pills, mention it to your pharmacist or your Dr and see if this would be a viable solution on your next refill. Additionally you can always contact you pharmacist to verify questions such as cutting your med or alternatives for taking them. They are usually happy to help, if not I would change pharmacies!
