What is the difference?


Difference between .5mg and 0.5? My past prescription was klonopin 0.5 (Yellow round) My pharmacy says they cant get it from the supplier anymore so I was given 1mg tablets (blue round) so I cut it in half making it a .5mg right? I don't know why this confuses me. :) i was taking it for anxiety, as needed, now I'm taking it for RLS (restless leg syndrome) as a sleep aid. RLS affects so many, no one is working on a cure. I know Magnesium helps and vitamin D3. Who knew? It's not just my legs it's sometimes my whole body. Horrible

No difference at all.

Your pharmacy is right .5mg and 0.5mg are exactly the same.

Hi they are the same.

They are the same but I think printing 0.5mg is safer and the . Could be easily missed

Looking at it now u feel silly. Of course there is no difference . I must have been half asleep. It's all resolved now. Not ordering the 1mg anymore. Thanks for your help.

I was taking klonopin for years for sleep. Then I read that klonopin can cause RLS, which I have. Weaned off klonopin and started magnesium rubs, pills. I get some relief:)
