    Don't know what med you are referring to Tristan - but a quick call to pharmacist would answer your query safetly.

    Oh ok, just realised you are on the Mirtazapine page. Definitely ring the pharmascist for advice, these I think are coated tablets without score lines ? You won't be getting a proper dose strength just by 'snapping a bit off', but I realise it is also important to continue and not stop this med, so could you not get an emergency prescription today ?

    Yes Tristan it's no problem at all as they have score lines.
    I have done it many times.
    If you take 22.5mg today it wont do you any harm or you could chip a little more off to get it closer to 15mg.

    Well, not really, I have never used it and didn't know it was a scored/breakable tablet, so advised ringing the pharmacist. However, bikermatt has used it and says it is breakable and has score lines. So, he overrides me.

    There may be a short return of whatever side-effects you had when first taking mirtazapine, with an emphasis on 'may.'
