The answer to your question is Yes, you can cut this pill in half to divide your dose. The main reason I know this is because M357 has a score line going through half of the pill. To my knowledge the score line is there for this specific purpose :)

More details about this drug can be found in the link below:

I hope this helps!

That is correct, it is not a time released medication and you can cut it in half to lower the dosage.

I had to do so myself, when a dentist prescribed it for an infection and the entire pill was too much and made me very ill.


As a general rule, if the medication is not a time released formulation and there are no instructions saying otherwise, then it can safely be cut in half.

Are there any other questions or comments?
