I wonder if the idea of making a variety of doses that are all only available in capsule form (rather than tablet) could be a strategy to maximize profits. Many pharmacy coverage plans may only cover the higher dosage tablets (because they can be split). Higher doses are usually always much cheaper/mg than the lower doses. If you can't divide the capsule-you have to buy the more "expensive" smaller dosages instead of large tablet split in half (i.e.).
