Medicine Mania

Me Sainted Irish Mother is prescribed metaprolol, a heart medication. It is to be administered in 12 mg doses. OHIP covers 50 mg. tablets, it does not cover 25 mg. tablets. Same sized tablet, just a different concentration.

A 25 mg. tablet is easily broken in half but have fun trying to score a 50 mg tablet into 4 “even” portions.
