These are different. Syndopa 275 is an immediate release version and is likely to be way too strong for her. The CR version is likely to be better for her. Syndopa CR comes in a 200/50 dosage. Starting with a low dosage - half a tablet - probably best. Never crush these or any time-release medication.

CR stands for controlled release. Depending on manufacturer can also be called sustained-release or extended-release. What this means is the medication is released slowly rather than all at once.
