Yep. Definitely don't take it, but call the pharmacist before you go to get another pill: some pharmacies have specific requirements about replacing "defective" goods, and you may have to return the bottle as well as the broken pill... especially if it wasn't your last one...
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
You have been given some good advice. Check with the Pharmacist. My metformin er says take whole do not crush or cut.

Agree TOTALLY with the advice do NOT take it and bring it back to the pharmacist. They should replace it for you. But I wouldn't take it. ANY ER type pill is designed in layers to facilitate the extended release. If it's otherwise broken or crushed, the wayt it's released is not as it should be. Not worth the risk.
