Can the 40 mg of viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) tablets be split and be effective...they are not scored.

Splitting tabs: As long as your doctor has indicated that she or he believes you should be taking 20 mg of viibryd, (vilazodone hydrochloride) rather than 40mg, then, yes. The pills can be split. You may want to ask your pharmacist about a pill splitter, a plastic device that helps you split pills (especially those that aren't scored, evenly. Don't forget to review with your prescribing doc & be well:)
