Is it safe/ok to split zyprexa zydis with a pill cutter?

Recommended Posts

Can I split my 10 mg zyprexa zydis with a pill cutter to take 5 mg of it AM and then take the other half (5 mg) and the 10 mg other zydis at bedtime = 15 mg at bedtime and 5 mg AM.

I am prescribed 10 mg AM and 10 mg bedtime but have been taking it all at bedtime as I do not tolerate the sedation and hunger from a higher 10 mg dose in the AM. 5 mg AM doesn’t do this to me. So I’d like my dose to be 5 mg AM and 15 mg bedtime.

I see pdoc next week but I fear the clinic will close its doors before then. And the nurse never returns my rare calls because she is against me for some reason.

If you can’t get through to your doctor, your pharmacist would know that.

Thanks gear. I actually needed this reminder to take it this morning! This is very timely! ❤️

I actually have been trying the full 10 mg AM and that has been going pretty well. And I still sleep pretty ok with only the remaining 10 mg bedtime too.
