Updated
Juliana Says:

i was prescribed with Bromocriptine, but i'am confused beacuse i see there are two types: the capsules which are 5mg and the tablets 2.5 mg. my doctor prescribed me to take 1/2 tablet each night, but he means half of the 2.5 mg or the 5 mg one. Iam confused because maybe I think that he menat half of the capsule (5mg) which is the 2.5 tablet. Iam currently taking half of the 2.5 mg, is this right or I should take the 2.5 entirely, which is the half of the 5 mg? HELP PLEASEEE!!!!

If I were in your shoes, the best thing to do is exactly what you are already doing, taking half of the 2.5 mg tablet; as your doctor prescribed. Better safe to under-dose than overdose.

I can understand how it would be confusing and awkward to take half of a tablet. I would get ahold of your doctor to clear this misconception.

The term "capsule" refers to a loose form of medication inside a swallowable soluble container of some kind, like a gelatin capsule. I don't think your doctor would tell you to take 1/2 of a capsule, since that would require dumping the other 1/2 every time you take one. Besides, you have the 2.5 mg tablet, which would be the same dose as 1/2 of the 5mg capsule.
Two action items: Speak with your doctor to be sure, and if I were I would take a dose of 1/2 of a tablet, unless taking enough drug is a matter of life or death. Read the labels on the bottles of the 2 dosage forms. What are their instructions?
