I just spoke to my pharmacist today, and he said, with any extended release tablet, you should never crush it or split it. It screws up whatever the scientific formulation is that permits it to release slowly. [I know, that sounds really unscientific.]

Anyway, we had this discussion, because my doctor wanted me to cut an Effexor XR in half, and I remembered hearing you are not supposed to do this, and the pharmacy confirmed that I have to get a prescription for regular Effexor to do that.

I was also on Wellbutrin and had the same issue. When it was time to get off of it, I got a prescription for regular Wellbutrin, so I could cut up the tablets and take less and less.

Anyway, if you're on 150, why not just get 100SR and take in the morning, and then take a small does later in the day, which would accomplish the same thing.

Legal disclaimer: I am neither a doctor nor a pharmacist, so don't necessarily do whatever I advise. LOL.
