The last 2 days I split a 60 mg capsule of Cymbalta into 2 doses of 30. I put half on ice cream and then drank water after swallowing the ice cream. I left the other half in the capsule. It seemed to work ok.
> > I'm sure this has been asked on here before but I can't seem to find it. Anyhow, is there a good way to split Cymbalta capsules? I need to be taking about 45 mg. and the only pills I have are 30 mg. and 60 mg. So what I did tonight was open up a 30 mg. capsule and dump about half the little pellets into a gelcap from the health food store (don't know if it's enteric coated--probably not though). And then I took that along with a another whole 30 mg. pill. Is this okay? My psychiatrist told me that I could split the dose if I wanted, but she didn't tell me how to go about it! Thanks in advance! :)
