> > I am sure the doctor has addressed this, but there is a specific warning against opening the capsules of Straterra and sprinkling over food. Just wanted to be sure you were aware of this. I read this last night in the information with a sample package.
> The warning is just FUD(Fear Uncertainty and Doubt) so you will give them more money. The inside powder tastes bad, so I put them in empty capsules.
> Update Ive been taking 12mg/day all at once in the morning (Im 200lbs be aware that there is quite a range (5:1) of blood level depending on your individual metabolism.). Seems to be working quite well at this low dosage only I notice that I crave food in the evening so I am going to try taking 10mg morning and 10 mg afternoon.
> No roller-coaster compared to Ritalin and it keeps working as opposed to the amphetamines I tried.

I'm very new to this, so can you explain why a warning against splitting capsules would cause a patient to give them more money? I don't understand. Sorry for my confusion!
