It is the regular type. Why? What is the difference please?
Expert:  Internist replied 1 year ago.

extender release (ER) /SR are good for whole day / 24 hours and are taken once a day. other type can be given in divided doses

Swallow tablets as a whole, do not crush/ chew or split.

Avoid driving and doing other tasks or actions that call for you to be alert or have clear eyesight until you see how this drug affects you.

This drug may cause high blood pressure.

Have your blood pressure checked often. Talk with your doctor.

do not miss doses.

Take as you have been told, even if you feel well.

If you miss a dose, Do not take 2 doses at the same time or extra doses.

keep it in a dry place at room temperature.

Expert:  Internist replied 1 year ago.

Do not take this drug more often than you are told. This may raise the risk of seizures. Be sure you know how far apart to take your doses

so take at the same time of day, every day.

whatever best suits you

If you are not able to sleep, do not take this drug too close to bedtime. Talk with your doctor.

Swallow whole. Do not chew, break, or crush
