Can I Split(cut In Half) A 100mg Tramadol Hcl Xr Pill And If Not Why Not?

Answer

It looks like that's an extended release (ER) pill which means that its got alot of medication in there that's slowly released over time. If you cut it up and take it you'll get a much higher dosage than intended - which can be dangerous - and you'll lose the extended release effect. You should never alter extended release drugs - there's just too much drug in there to fool with.
