Hello
How are you?
If you need 5mg of zolpidem you can ask the doctor for a prescription.
Normally the doctor doesn't recommend cutting pills in half.

They are coated and not scored so they cannot be cut.

Yes, you can cut it in half as long as it is not an extended release tablet.

I started using 1/2 (5)mg before bedtime and the other half around midnight, and seems to work very well for me

Hi Katie. As long as they aren't the XR~extended release then yes you can cut them in half. I do it all the time with my Dr's consent. Take care.
