Has anyone been prescribed half a tablet or know about regulations against this form or dosing? I m prescribed 30mg XR and 10 mg IR. I also have a follow up in a few hours and want to bring up idea because it would save me a lot (same price for both doses thanks to goodRX)

You’re good to go. Just get yourself a good pill cutter.

Yes, I'm prescribed half a 20mg rather than a 10mg pill. This is because I take four doses of 10mg, and my insurance limits to two 10mg pills a day, but they allow three 20mg pills a day. Makes no sense, but there you have it.

I too am prescribed half dosages. I am prescribed 40 mg a day, and I have 10mg 3/4 times a day.

I too am prescribed half dosages. I am prescribed 40 mg a day(20 mg twice a day) and I take 10mg 3-4 times per day.
