OK to split Ativan?

Flying tomorrow night...I have 1mg Ativans, was thinking of trying half a dose.

It's ok to split these, right? I know some drugs you are not supposed to split, but my understanding is these are very similar to Klonopin except they act faster and leave your system faster?

Yes, you can split Ativan. Just be careful not to inhale the dust.

It's ok to split any med that is *scored.* That means it has an indented divided line where you snap it. If the med has no indented divided lines or is in capsule form or the instructions say not to open or to swallow whole, it shouldn't be done. Happy flying & have a great time! Let us know how it goes. GL & GBU! (((hugs))) jan
