Re: 1/2 pill stuck in throat?
Thanks to you both, it makes sense. I have to take 1 1/2 at each dose...it happens a bit too much. They are definitely jagged when split but at least they don't fall apart and actually split. I had the same med by a different manufacturer and they would literally crush when I tried to split them! I would lose like half the pill almost all the time. I called the pharmacy and told them since it was affecting my dose. They kinda didn't believe me or thought I wasn't doing it right. I went to the pharmacy and in front of them, with a new pill cutter I bought there, showed them. Each time half of it would crush or break off really wrong! And I had the pharmacist try and the same thing happened. She said "don't worry, the dose will work out in the end" (or something to that effect). I told my doctor and he was like, uh, no. Of course, I couldn't switch for a different brand after having it filled. So I told them which brand split ok for me, still not perfect, but ok. 2 other times, after I reminded them...they gave me the same pills...switched pharmacies.
Sorry for the tangent...I guess there are more important things to worry about....this is minor.
So...I drank some hot tea (peppermint) and it helped. I guess I will just have to put up with it.
