I wouldn’t say his change in behavior perfectly coincided with the change to capsules, but definitely within a few weeks. He actually is getting a refill today, and I will go back to the old pharmacy and get the tablet form. It would be nice if that solves the issue and no increase is necessary. I’m reading that generally the tablet form is dispensed twice a day, whereas he only takes one dose in the morning, so maybe a smaller afternoon dose might be necessary. I’m definitely not making any decisions on my own, don’t worry, I’m just gathering information so I know what questions to ask the doctor when we go in for his appointment. Ideally I’d like him to stay on the lower dose, but if it’s not working then an increase might be necessary.
