Thanks all for the additional comments .......they've been helpful.
chemist: thanks esp. for that tip. I know my nightmare would be going on a trip and forgetting the splitter......I imagine that the splitter is big enough that I can't carry it in my jacket pocket all the time like I do my travel pills. I never have to remember the pills; just to take the right jacket.
My health plan coverage is such that splitting the high strength
Diovan would make it the same price as the mid strength Losartan. Doubling the Losartan might or might not work (intend to try w/ Doc's consent w/ remaining trial Rx when he's back) but I know Diovan works and would worry less about side effects than w/ something new (Losartan)
