I was told by several pharmacists that you can't split suspended release or extended release tablets. So, I guess it's all about who you ask, as it sounds like we both have heard different things from reliable sources. I recommend talking to your doctor and go from there.

> Taking 50mg regular would be the same as taking 50mg of a split SR 100mg tablet. If 100mg is the target dose you CAN split one tablet in half to titrate for a couple of days then take the 100mg tablet. If all you're planning on taking is 50mg then sure, go with the regular. I actually called Glaxo and one of the pharmacists said to titrate for a couple of days that it's fine.
