Can I cut the 40 mg viibryd pills in half?

My doctor said I could but I was still hesitant. I put one whole pill and one half pill in cups of water to see the difference in dissolving. There was an immaterial difference in how quickly they dissolved. Both were fully dissolved within one minute.
Be very careful with this one. I have tried 3 times to take cut 40's (I'm prescribed 20s) and I take it before going to bed. Each night I have an outer body experience, have difficulty waking from it, and feel like I'm in a coma. I am a psych professional, I do not have any psych diagnoses other than anxiety due to post-traumatic stress disorder. I am not prone to hallucinations or anything odd. But these nights really freaked me out. Some medications cannot be cut/opened due to the amount of chemicals being dumped into your system quickly. I don't know if this is one of them. But, if it does this to you, then stop and tell your doctor.
Only if the doctor prescribed 20 mg for you.
Yes, as long as your doctor tells you that that is what you should do. The above poster said it's scored but the 40mg pill is not. I have to cut mine in half and have a hard time getting it equal but you can do it that way.
Hello tpparker1. Yes you can. I believe it has a perforated line just for that purpose. I'd take the dug as perscribed. If your doctor confirms that yes, for reasons other, you can split the dose. Regards, pledge
