Dr. Kaushik :

Hi ghere,

Dr. Kaushik :

Welcome to Just answer !

Dr. Kaushik :

Well, what dose are you taking ?

Dr. Kaushik :

is the tablet a scored one that is does it have a middle straight line ?

Customer: I am taking 10mg of viibryd daily. And no the medication is not scored. I do mean literally cutting the pill in half. Like if I cut the pill in half does it effect how the body metabolizes the drug.
Dr. Kaushik :

No ..

Dr. Kaushik :

i do not think there will be any problem if you cut in half , provided if the drug is not coated in which case it should not be cut .

Dr. Kaushik :

So, if the drug is not coated , then you can cut it and take it , this will not effect the metabolism.

Dr. Kaushik :

I hope this helps..
