If it is scored(has a slightly depressed line) down the middle it can be broken for sure. Otherwise its probably safe if its not a long acting pill. I would ask my pharmacist to be sure it was ok. Is the doc aware you want to decrease the dose?

Usually with that medication, 5 mg is the least dose that works. I understand you're concern of overmedication the first time tho. If you could take half and then if it doesn't work you could take the other half, you'd feel better. I'd call the pharmacist and ask if it was ok to cut. Please read the info you got from the pharmacy with the prescription too.
