Actually, if you look at the package insert metoprolol ER can be cut in half. They just should not be crushed or chewed.

look under dosage and administration heading

Yes, I asked my M.D. As long as the pill is scored down the middle, that means it can be broken in half. Pills that aren't scored down the middle should not be broken in half.
