I stopped taking my meds for around 4 weeks (against advice of my doc) I originally started on 25 mg dose but I'm now restarting and am worried that the 100 mg will be too strong, should I just take half for a few days and then a full?
You may want to talk to your doctor about starting a lower dose and work up. I would not advise splitting you pills until you discuss this with your doctor.
Hope it all works out for you :)
Hi, Rose! If your tablets are not scored you can not split them without risking getting an inaccurate dose of the drug in your medication.
Although 100mg is a *middle of the road* dose, it may still be too high for you starting out. Ask your doctor if she/he would script a lower dose tablet for you as you get used to it. Or try the 100mg and see how you do with it. Did you have problems with the 25mg?
