Can Abilify be cut in half?

The main reason to cut a pill in half is to reduce the amount taken. If you believe that your tablets are in too large of a dose, talk to your doctor about reducing dosage. This will prevent you from needing to cut a tablet in half. If it is merely a matter of convenience, Abilify can be cut in half, but this exposes the active ingredient to the air, which can reduce effectiveness. Thus, cutting is not a wise course of action.

Abilify is very expensive and a 2mg pill is just about the same price as a 15 mg pill. I buy the 15mg and cut them in half and it has cut my RX bill in half as well. I only need about 7mg per day, and I take the other half the following day
