> The prescribing info recommends 10mg, period, including elderly patients and those with impaired livers or kidneys. It is interesting to note that the prescribing info says there seems to be no benefit to 20mg over 10mg.
> I'm curious, why even bother to manufacturer 5mg pills? The 10 mg pills are scored. Has any testing been done on the 5mg dose?
no...not yet...10 is the starting and maintenance dose...20 if 10 looks a little "light." What do you mean 20mg no benefit? where did you read this?
