You are much better off taking 1/2 of a pill each day rather than exposing your brain to a roller coaster ride of Wellbutrin blood levels. I think it is okay to ignore the manufacture's insistence not to cut pills in half.

If you haven't given Wellbutrin treatment sufficient time to sink in, perhaps the side-effects will subside at 1 pill per day given more time. I would try that first. You can also try to cut back to 1/2 pill for a few weeks and then bring the dosage back up to 1 pill per day.
