Inge,

If you were to take 2 of the Rytary, mathematically you would be at 47.5/190mg. Now this is very close to the Rytary 48.75/195mg capsules, but there is an issue. When yo take 1 capsule it will be broken down and absorbed at one rate. If you were to take 2 capsules, they will break down and absorb at different rates and not give you a consistant level of medication in your system, which is very important with this medication.

I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
