Is it safe to split pills?


It is not ideal to split a pill as every time you split a pill, you're probably not getting the precise dosage that your doctor prescribed, and this can have negative effects. Also, heat, humidity, and moisture are more likely to impact the effectiveness of split pills that are left lying around. However, it can be done in some cases. Tablets with a scoreline typically mean they can be split. This mark, or notch, offers assistance to make a clean cut. But don’t just assume it’s safe to split any pill with a score mark. It’s always best to talk with your pharmacist or doctor first.
