So cut a pill just before you take it, then take the other half as your next dose. That helps ensure that you compensate for any deviation in size. And split pills in halfnot into smaller. Dec 04, 2016 Pills should only be split in half, not into smaller portions, such as thirds or quarters.

    Therefore Plaquenil should not be used in pregnancy. Lactation Careful consideration should be given to using hydroxychloroquine during lactation, since it has been shown to be excreted in small amounts in human breast milk, and it is known that infants are extremely sensitive to the toxic effects of 4-aminoquinolines.
