Citilopram using a pill cutter.

Edited , 6 users are following.

Its me again and I was wondering if anyone else cuts their citilopram tablets into quarters. You see my GP upped my dose from 10 mg to 15 mg and I have 20 mg tablets. I was wondering if this will still work. I take half and a quarter tablet. Thanks for any reply.

    Yes I used a pill cutter - it used to eek my pills out when I was on a smaller dose too, plus cut them when I withdrew.

    My cutter also had a crusher which I used at the end of the withdrawal.

    When on the tablets this worked well and did this for years. You don’t always get a complete even split, but what you’ll take one day you’ll make it up the next.

    😉

      When I upped my dose , my GP originally wanted me on 20mg , but I am taking it slow to see if 15mg would work first. If not I will go up to 20mg. If I stay at 15 then I will get the 10 mg tablets.

    i always split my tablets in half and eat it i wont take the full 20mg as i feel that will be to much for me and its not always about the pill MG its about being persistent when taking it at the right times everyday as i noticed

    I have used a pill cutter.

    The pills I get now are scored so I just bite them in half. To get a quarter, u could bit it again - heh.
