Still have not gotten a definitive answer from Medical professionals as to whether it is okay to cut Viibryd tablets. Does anyone know if the effect is somehow compromised if you cut Viibryd in half? Specifically, I am wondering if cutting a 40 mg Viibryd pill in half provides the same effect as taking a fully coated 20 mg tablet.
Hi Rathmullan: I found this info - "What is the half-life of vilazodone? The half-life of vilazodone is 24 hours, which is why it is not provided in an extended-release form." I assume that since Viibryd is not time-released, it is safe to cut it in half. The time-released tablets usually tell you in the instructions when a particular tablet can not be split in half, such as my prescription for Wellbutrin SR always stated, which was time-released. I cut my buspirone tabs in half all the time with no problem, as that is another example of a med that can be cut since it is not time-released. If it is not stated in your paperwork you received with your prescription, it should be fine to cut it in half without compromising the effects. One more thought: Is your Viibryd tablet scored with a line down the middle on one side? Sometimes this tells you if one can be split or not. Good luck.
