About The Dosage Of Drugs?
, is 1/2 tablet of Lameson 8 mg the same as 1 tablet of Lameson 4 mg?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The drug you mentioned contains the generic methylprednisolone and is a corticosteroid class of drugs. These drugs work by suppressing the immune system thereby reducing inflammatory reactions and reducing symptoms, such as pain, swelling, and rashes. This drug can be used to treat various inflammation in various diseases, such as colitis, asthma, arthritis and respiratory infections.
Regarding your question, it is true that in numerical terms, half an 8 mg tablet is the same as one 4 mg tablet. However, what must be considered is that if the drug is divided by itself, it can be crushed and then divided in half or broken itself, there is a possibility that the dose is not divided exactly in half, and the body's release of the drug is not optimal. This is because sometimes drugs are coated with certain ingredients that make them released only after they reach a certain place in the digestive system. If the lining is damaged, then the drug can be released too early and reduce its performance.
Therefore, our advice is that you should consult with the doctor who treats you again, and if he does not recommend it, you should look for a pharmacy that provides 4 mg of methylprednisolone directly. So, hopefully it answers your question.
