Can I cut Isosorb Mono ER 30mg Tab Wes in half?

For lack of funds I was without my isosorb mono er 30mg tab WES for five days. I started taken it again and after two days of horrible headaches realized must be my meds. My question is can I cut them in half so my system can more slowly get used to the Isosorb again? ## Hello, Based on my research, Splitting tablets (if split unevenly) may effect the designed release profile significantly enough to where it may cause health problems. The way certain tablets (especially coated and controlled release tablets) are broken down and absorbed in the body can change when they are split. This can potentially decrease positive effects and increase negative effects associated with the medication. Tablets that are safe to split normally have a score line or breakage line. Are there any breakage li...

spliiting 30mg of isosorb mono er pill

My Dr. put me on 30mg of isosorbide mono er. Not for Angina but to improve my oxygen intake. My problem is that When I take a pill I cannot take another, the next morning, because my blood pressure is in the 20's. I am 88, had open heart triple bypass surgery 6 years ago. Plaque,that was my only problem. Drs. say that I have a strong heart. Question -- Can I split the pill and take only half a pill per morning. ## Wow! Your BP drops to the 20's? Is that systolic or diastolic? Strong heart, or not, the is a dangerously low number. My PCP and cardiologist worry if mine drops below 90/60. Have you been experiencing any symptoms, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, and headache? Are you on any other medications?

How do you stop taking isosorbide mononitrate

I don't like the way I feel. Dizzy at times, stomach problems, constipated and dry mouth. ## How long have you been taking it and why was it prescribed? Those can be normal side effects, you may experience headache and diarrhea. However, since this is used to treat heart conditions, you shouldn't stop it, without your doctor's approval. Are you on any other medications?
