I took my first and only capsule of amrix 3 days ago and I still feel drowsy.

I would like to continue with a smaller dose, like 5 mg.

My Amrix is time released and a capsule contains many white beads. Can I simply divide the capsule and take a portion at a time?

No, it is not safe to try and do that with any time released medication. What dosage are you taking? You doctor should be able to prescribe a lower one for you.

The U.S. FDA lists its other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and headache.

I don't think there is a lower dosage amrix than 15 mg.
