How to use:
Response to buspirone varies among individuals. Your physician may find it necessary to adjust your dosage to obtain the proper response.
The 15 mg tablet design makes dosage adjustments easy. Each tablet is scored and can be broken accurately to provide any of the following dosages.
If your doctor prescribed the 15 mg tablet:
15 mg (the entire tablet)
10 mg (two thirds of a tablet)
7.5 mg (one half of a tablet)
5 mg (one third of a tablet)
To break the tablet accurately and easily, hold the tablet between your thumbs and index fingers close to the appropriate tablet score (groove) as shown in the photo. Then, with the tablet score facing you, apply pressure and snap the tablet segments apart (segments breaking incorrectly should not be used).
