Drugs That Have A Diameter, Can Be Split To Reduce The Dose?
Mlm, I got info from Google, what if the tablet that has a median line means that the drug has not been split, right? To reduce the dose? Is it true?
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Indeed, some drugs will have a diameter that can be used as a place to make drug splitting if the dose required is smaller than the dose of the drug available.
However, not all drugs can or may be split. Because there are some drugs that have a dose deviation at the time of division. Especially for drugs that really need the accuracy of the dose, such as drugs for Parkinson's, heart rhythm control drugs, and arthritis relievers.
If you really want to split the drug, you should consult a pharmacist first so that the cutting is done with a drug cutting tool in order to get the right dose for consumption
That is the information we can convey. May be useful
