Interesting that your Pdoc was okay with splitting SR tabs, but pharmacist said it's not advisable. Always intriguing how research gets translated into clinical practice. Keep us updated with how you're doing.

> This evening Pdoc prescribed 100 mg of bupropion SR to be split into 50 mg daily. He said there is no problem with it and if I am able to tolerate 50 mg without headaches, irritability, or tremors, I can take the whole tablet of 100 mgs. That remains to be seen. I will see him again in two weeks.
>
> I did double up on my small dose of 25 mgs of Topomax tonight in anticipation of a headache tomorrow. I am not throwing three years of seeing a neurologist for hormonal, cluster headaches down the tube. Should have discussed this with Pdoc tonight but never got the chance. Might have minimal word finding difficulty tomorrow but 50 mgs. of Topomax is still a very low dose.
