No, it is coated with a film that causes it to be absorbed a little later on in digestion. If you cut it, that is taken away. It isn't scored because its not supposed to be cut.

They are not scored for cutting but I have done it. They don't cut easily though and it is hard to get them to cut in half. You usually end up with pieces unless you have a actual pill cutter which still does not cut then in half.
With all the difference sizes available why would you want to cut it in half?
Make sure you take it with some food if you do try it.

Hi, i just wanted to add this in case you didn't know... Amitriptyline are available in the following strengths: 10, 25, 50, 75, 100 & 150mg. So if you need to take a lower strength tablet, you can ask your doctor to change your prescription
