Does anyone know if you can cut Lamictal in half? It is scored, so it looks like it is made to be cut, but I asked the pharmacist and she said it said not to. All the literature I found said to take it whole, as if it is chewed it will produce a bitter taste. Does not say anything about it being extended release and getting too much medication at one time. difficult child's psychiatrist even said I could cut it in half. Usually I go with the pharmacist, but this just does not seem right. I will e-mail psychiatrist later and tell him what pharmacist said.
