why do people post such important and subject themselves to a potential medical situation- why not just pick up the phone and call YOUR DR. or GO THE PHARMACY AND ASK THEM!
Really people!-

@romine,

Well I can't speak for everyone, but I do know that some questions of this nature don't necessarily need to be answered by a doctor specifically. For example, if there is a score line on your pill then it's usually safe to be cut in half, since that's what it's intended for. In the case that there's no dividing line, then it certainly would be a good idea to contact your doctor or pharmacy first and foremost (especially if they are time-released tablets).

And even then, not all medical professionals know how a drug is going to end up effecting you until you start taking it. So in many situations it's also equally important to do your own homework and research on what it is that you're putting in your body. Reviews from other patients within the community may also help offer guidelines or pointers that you can share with your doctor for a second or third opinion.
