LEXAPRO - 20mg - half of tablet ???

Posted by mikal on February 3, 2003, at 7:33:19

Funny thing happened recently. My Doc phoned in the prescription for my Lex and it was a 20mg dose instead of a 10mg. I didn't notice until I got home. Normally (Ha-what ever that is;) I would call and ask for a new script of correct dose. However it was a Friday evening and I wouldn't be able to talk to him until Monday... two days too long without Lexapro. I don't want to go back to that place I was at w/ the Panic and Anxiety... So I took a 20mg and was layed out pretty heavily... felt just like 1st day on Lexapro... not a good feeling. So since, I've been cutting it in half (sort of; I'll explain.) I wasn't sure if anyone else had tried this, and today I saw that there are a bunch of us trying to conserve our $$$. 10mg works fine for me, and would rather not have to adjust to 20mg, however, I'm having a hell of a time cutting the tablet in half. I know this sounds a bit cheap or seedy, but does anybody have any "tips" on how to most effectively get a tablet to break in half. I've been having problems getting even pieces, and do not want to waste my time and $$$.
