Oral Steroid Dosage Adjustment


#1

Hi all. My question is, when the proposed dosage for a cycle (that is the increments of one day's dose) is not equal to and less than one tablet's worth, is adjusting the dose as simple as cutting the tablet up into smaller pieces?

Example: recommended dose of arimidex is 0.25mg ED. Tablet size is 1 mg. is it as simple as cutting the tab into 4 equal parts??

Thank you in advance!

Get a pill cutter.

It really is that simple. Get a pill cutter or sharp razor blade. You may find with certain tabs you can only split them once, so for Arimidex uou may split your 1mg tab in half and use EOD

crushing it up into lines isn’t actually such a bad idea.

Not sure I’d snort it though!
