I've been thinking of how to get an even dose from those oddly shaped 100mg pills. How likely is there to be an even distribution of active chemical throughout the pill? Say I'm able to quarter them fairly uniformly, could there still be 40mg in one hunk and just 10mg in another? Would the potential fluctuation be a worse choice than just going to 50mg next Friday?
Wk1. 1/2 a 25mg tab daily = 12.5mg
Wk2. 1 25mg tab daily = 25mg (just started today)
Wk3. 1/4 a 100mg tab + 1/2 a 25mg = 37.5 (Ideally I'd like to coast around 33-38mg for a few weeks, I'm already feeling the med, I think I'm liking it. but unless I had access to a good scale I doubt I could portion out that dose without the 25mg pills to split.)
Wk 4 1/2 a 100mg tab = 50mg (which is where I'm staying unless the benefits change. Sadly I will be telling the doc that I've gotten to 100mg and agree to fill the 200mg script because, "otherwise I see no point in bothering with trying the lamictal" to quote my oh so respectful p-doc.)
or wk3 I could just take 1/4 of a 100mg tab to stay at 25 mg longer...
I don't think this is a med I can dissolve and portion out that way??
Am I being super silly about this?
Would love to hear ideas.
(Crazy cough is gone, thanks for the help with that.)
