No you can't. Its not meant to be split.

I was on 40 mg and was having some leg twitching problems my doctor put me back on 20 mg and told me since I had just refilled my 40 mg I could cut them in half.

Technically if it's not a scored pill you shouldn't split it but my dr had me splitting it so I just cut it in half. It's not suspended release or anything so it's not a big deal.

Well said! I also split my 40mg pills, as per approval from my doctor and I also verified it's safety with the manufacturer, Forest Pharmaceuticals. The esoteric coating is merely to help with preserving freshness and stomach irritation!
