Can I just get the 200mg and double it instead of the large 550 mg pill???
Then you would be taking 400 mg instead of the prescribed 550 mg. Now you need to ask your Dr. if this is acceptable. If the pill is a tablet, the Dr. may approve of having you take 2- 200 mg tabs and cut a 3rd tab in half for a total dose of 500 mg. You can buy an inexpensive pill cutter for this. It takes a little practice to use the pill cutter well.
