I am on 10 mg zolpidem and was wondering if i could split it in half for 5 mgs? i know you can't split ambien cr, but am not sure about the zolpidem.

thank you for your response!

I would assume that you can, as long as it is in tablet form and not a capsule. There's other factors, however, like time release and whatnot, so to be certain, I'd just make a call to your pharmacist and ask.

I'm about to start taking it and was wondering the same thing.

Hey there! I don't know the answer off-hand, but I'm sure someone can tell you. If not I'll figure it out.

Anyway, I've been gone from the boards for awhile & just came back. Alot's gone down in the interim, but things are finally working out for me for the most part. Still depressed and all & having to move to someone's couch real soon - but all my legal woes are pretty much over. Yay!

How have you been?

I was allowed to, though it wouldn't hurt to double-check.

IIRC they have a score mark which usually indicates they can be split.

Other than that and no "warnings" in the packaging, I don't know.

PS - Hi Kathryn. Long time no see. (of course I was absent for a while, too.)

Is it a new 'handle' or do I just have that fuzzy a memory. I definitely remember the pic.

definitely a new handle. i am trying to update as i feel better. it should now say "stable, not balanced"
