Hi Everyone! Today I opened my 8mg sub film to cut it into fours (I take 2mg) and when I took out the film I saw it had a curvey crack going through it and it seemed dry?! Is it no good or is this something that happens to them from time to time? Has it happened to anyone else?
Any answers or replies would be appreciated :)

Yep,

This has been an ongoing discussion here for years. It seems to happen only to the 8mg film and not the 2's. I myself had some and found they worked just as well as the not dried out ones.

Since going to the 2mg ones the problem has not happened yet. If you are taking just 2mg's several times a day then maybe ask your Dr. to change you over.

Have you tried the cracked ones yet? Decide for yourself what works better.

Thanks for the replies! I did use it and it was fine. My dr first started me on 8mg but since I also suffer from chronic pain in my back and has to dose more throughout the day, I just take 2mg at a time so I'm still only taking 8mg in one day.
I don't have insurance and they cost a lot, so this way it lasts longer for me this way.
Thanks for clearing this up for me! I thought I had a bad one for a minute there lol

The insane thing is that a box of 30qty 2mg films costs about the same as a box of 30qty 8mg films.

I use a tiny airtight tupperware type box to store my cut up film and a pair of tweezers to pick up the piece and put in my mouth.

I recommend only cutting and storing 1 film at a time because once they open the chemicals are exposed to air and I think they can decay, I've heard different things. But I am at .75 mg so one 8mg film lasts me over 10 days and they seem just fine, I will let you guys know if I grow a third arm.

-gb

P.s. my films have been corked before many times I just hope my current and final box continues to be in tact. cutting .25mg pieces on cracked films sucks.
