Check your prescription medications to see if they qualify for the "split a pill" program. The program identifies medications that you can take in 1/2 pill form and be safe knowing you are getting a correct dosage. If your medication qualifies, your doctor can write the prescription for a dose 2x your need and when you fill your prescription, using a pill splitter, you split all the pills in 1/2 immediately. Your dose is now 1/2 a pill each time.
I dont think you need to have any type of "split a pill" program. My doctor had samples of Dynacirc CR, a medication I take. The samples were twice my usual doseage. I was able to split the pills and had twice the benefit of the samples.
Also, the manufacturer of Dynacirc CR will give you one month's supply of Dynacirc CR free every three months. My doctor wrote the prescription for twice my doseage. I split the pill in half and have two months for free.
BTW, the best place to purchase a pill spliter is Dollar Tree where they are only $1. My local pharmacy hasnt been able to restock their supply of pill spliters for several months. They are on back order at the CVS. But an employee told me to ask for one at the Dollar Tree. I had two employees come to my aid to ensure I found what I was looking for. It doesnt get any better than that, huh? It works perfectly.
thanks for submitting your wonderful suggestion.
