Eglonyl 200mg/Eglony 50mg

Good day

I was put on Eglonyl last year due to postpartem depression (by my obs-gynae) and therafter due to low milk supply (by paediatrician).

I collected my script yesterday and the pills I was dispensed were Eglonyl Forte (200mg) to be taken twice day.

I have always been given Eglonyl 50mg (three times a day which comes to 150mg a day).

Also the script for this Eglonyl Forte was drawn by my GP. I am not sure if he could have made a mistake. Is there much of a difference between the 50mg and 200mg? I am just concerned with the sudden high dose and wonder if I can still continue breastfeeding with it?

Thanking you in anticipation.

It is very important to reconsult your doctor, as there is a difference. According to the new script you will be taking 400mg daily and previously only 150mg daily. Your doctor will be able to explain the increase in dose.
