    Mucinex D
    An_241558 posted:
    I take Mucinex D for allergies every day. I have had gastric bypass surgery and wonder if I can cut the tablets in half and take an hour apart to get the full effect. I think they are getting out of my system too fast for me to get the max effect.
    The tablets are not scored. Thank you.

    Please call your gastric doctors office and ask to be sure.
    The nurse there should be able to help you.

    Hope you feel better soon!
