No,: as tablets aren't scored, and that may affect absorption, ask your doctor if you can take every other day till your next refill, good luck

Rexulti: “Because the product is unscored and, thus, not designed to be split, some of the smaller dosage forms may be required to achieve lower doses.” REF: https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/nda/2015/205422Orig1Orig2s000MedR.pdf (see page #24)
