Does anyone here take Metoprolol ER?
I have a question about splitting the pill. I know it is Extended Release and that we can't crush it nor chew it but does anyone here split the pill? Mine has a line in the middle, which leads me to think that splitting it is fine. I asked the pharmacist and she wasn't too confident about her answer. She said, “people have done it before” or something in the likes of that but did not reassure me that “yes, it can be done and to go ahead and do it”.
Thank you in advance.
~ Fellow GD patient diagnosed June 2012 with a non-existent TSH, elevated fT3 and fT4, and a TSI of 4.5. On Methimazole 30mg/day for the first 8 weeks. On Methimazole 10mg/day for the next 6 weeks. On Methimazole 5mg/day for a week and a half. On Methimazole 5mg every 4 days for a month. On Methimazole 2.5mg/day starting Nov 15. In Nov labs showed a normal fT4, a normal TSH, and a TSI of 3.2. As of May 2013, still taking Methimazole 2.5mg/day and labs are all normal. TSI is unknown. Diet: Gluten and yeast free. Love to read and learn. Very interested in the immune part of GD ~
