Discuss with your Dr: Your physician likely had a reason for prescribing the lower dose, based upon your particular situation. That's the problem with generalized information on the internet; it does not and can't take individual situations into account.

It should, but…: It should, but I would talk with the Doctor Who prescribed it and ask them the same question. You want to be sure that it was the correct dosage and that it was their intention to give you that dosage. I commend you for following up on what you are taking. Good luck.
