    Cappy, do you have one of those pill splitters? Those pills can be too small to break easily. Good luck.

            I am not sure what the span is...take your meds as soon as you remember...and call your doc if you have any questions.

                  I have a six-week supply of Toprol-XL 200 mg tablets left over from when i was taking it. I suppose that technically i'm not allowed to just give them away, but i sure hate to throw out such expensive medicine, especially when there are folks without prescription coverage who are paying for it out of their pockets. The bottles are still sealed, and the tablets are scored, so anyone taking 100mg daily could cut them in half and have a 12-week supply. Any ideas folks?

                    It's such a shame to waste these expensive meds, but dispensing meds requires a license. A private message for personal dealings would be best. Linda
