Hello, I am taking the 180 and about to run out, and have some 240 mgs left. Can i take them until my 180s get filled? Would there be any problems? They are the same except the dosage.

Hello, Donald! How are you?

It would be best not to raise your dosage, without your doctor's approval. Taking a higher dose could result in your experienced nausea, dizziness, lowered blood pressure and lowered heart rate, as reported by the FDA, which may put your life in danger.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Use a good pill cutter. Cut them in half.

Re: Lizard (# 2)

That's probably not a good idea since "ER" means "Extended Release" - they are likely coated to be time released and if you cut them in half, the dosage would take effect too much at one time. If the tablets don't have a score line on them then do not break them in half.
