Buying bigger pills and cutting them in half with a pill splitter can save hundreds or thousands of dollars per year.
Using a pill cutter is a deceptively simple way to save money on drugs, but few consumers or even doctors are aware that it's an option. Many drugs cost about the same per pill, regardless of the dosage. As a result, patients who buy a larger pill that contains twice the dose they need can cut it in half with a pill splitter and save as much as 50 percent.
Using a pill splitter may be an option for many.
