Dr. Ed Wilfong :

It is illegal to write scripts online for this. You may try cutting tablets. Cut down by 1/2 mg per day per week until you are where you want to be.

JACUSTOMER-lri0kaoy- : THANK YOU! All I needed to know was how to divide what I have.
Dr. Ed Wilfong :

You can cut it, crush it, whatever works. Just don't quit too fast.
