Tip of the Day: Don’t Crush or Split RX Without Dr’s OK


Posted on : 26-05-2010 | By : georginesaves | In : Tip of the day

Many prescription medications are meant to be taken in the form that they are prescribed. Splitting or crushing certain ones will compromise their effectiveness because some are meant to dissolve slowly or others are meant to coat your stomach. ALWAYS check with your doctor before changing the appearance. DO NOT buy a higher dose and try to use half to save money without asking your doctor or pharmacist if it is safe. Never stop a medication before prescribed!
