Can I break this in half?

It's me again! Can I break a 10mg. flexeril in half? It's not scored and I thought the rule was if there is no scoring, it shouldn't be broken in half.

Re: Can I break this in half?

Flexerill isn't a long acting med so breaking it will only reduce the strength. When you gbreak a long acting med you destroy the release mechanism and take the chance of having 12 hours or 24 hours worth of meds all dumped at once. It makes no difference with Flexerill.
Good luck, Dave

I believe Dave is correct but to be absolutely sure call your pharmacy. Fred

Re: Can I break this in half?

sorry for the double post. In case anyone else wants to know the answer to this- I called the pharmacist and he said it's fine, you will get half the dose though. UUHHH I think that was the idea!
