Pill splitter

How to use a pill splitter

There are many different kinds of pill splitters. Most work like this:

  • Place the pill in the slot, and close the lid. A small blade precisely cuts the pill in half.
  • Sweep the halves into the open box.
  • Pick them up and store them in your normal container.
