Is it alright to cut zyprexa? How soon after cutting it before it looses it's effectiveness?


Posted by calm before the storm

One Psy. perscribed 7.5mil 2X a day for my child. Masshealth refuses to give us 2 tablets.  I have been cutting them.  Another psy. stated that, by my cutting the tablet--once the pill has been introduced to oxygen the pill looses it effectiveness.  Is this true or false?  I called Eli Lilly and they could not tell me. All of their studies were done with non-cut tablets.  They said that the pill may discolor if cut, however they do not know about it's effectiveness.
