Anyone tried cutting Omeprazole tablet in half to lower the dose - preparing to try to taper off PPI
Posted , 3 users are following.
So I’m going to soon try coming off my PPI. I take Omeprazole 20mg tablets 1 tablet per day. Instead of trying to taper off by taking it every other day, I may first need to reduce the dose to 10mg every day for a bit. I know the directions say not to cut or crush the tablets......but curious to know if anyone has tried cutting them to lessen the dose and if so, did it work? I’ll add that I’m int U.S. 20mg tabs are the lowest dose available over the counter. Thanks!
