My Dr. made a mistake with the mgs of my prescription of Zolipedem CR.I usually take 12mgs and she wrote it for 6.25. I can't get a new prescription for another 3 weeks due to drug regulations . I am not able to sleep with the smaller dose.I just want to know if it is safe to take two of the 6.25 CR tablets that I have.Thanks
Simply doubling up on the dosing by taking 2 of the 6.25 MG pills is absolutely not the same thing. As I see you realized, these 6.25's are controlled/extended release formulations of zolpidem. The most important thing for me to emphasize is that what you are talking about doing is called drug diversion, and it can be a pretty serious crime. I'm absolutely not calling you a criminal but that's worst case scenario. My suggestion would be to just be honest with your doctor and let her know about the mix up. More than likely she appreciates your honesty and you avoid any issues with running out sooner than you should thus raising a red flag to your pharmacist. Hope this helps
