My doctor had put me on 120mg (2grains). the pharmacy I had then gave me one pill to take each morning. I switched pharmacies and that pharmacy still gave me one pill to take each morning. Well since I no longer work in the same city that the last pharmacy is in I switched once again to one closer to home. The new pharmacy gives me two 60mg's instead of the one 120mg's. Should I be worried about the dosage being split into two pills?

I wouldn't be worried. It's still the same dose; they probably just didn't have the 120s. The pharmacist would only change it if they knew it was exactly the same as what the script was written for - otherwise they would have to consult your doctor first.

If you're really concerned about it, I would suggest calling the doctor.

Is there any chance that your doc wants you to take the pills separately? My doctor just upped my dosage to two grains - one in the morning, and one at lunch (well, obviously before lunch so that I take it on an empty stomach and then wait at least half and hour before eating). Could this be the reason that they gave it to you this way? If not, then I agree with MannyMommy, I wouldn't think that taking it together in two grains at the same time would be any different than taking one grain at a higher dosage. I'm not sure though since I've never had that come up personally before, so yeah, if you are not comfortable with it, I think I would check with my doctor.

It was because the pharmacy doesn't carry the 2 grain in stock. The doctor said I could either take them both at the same time or take one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
