Editor's Notes

March 28, 2019:

While there isn't a lot of high-quality variety in the pill splitting market, we looked for reliable options that were proven not to reduce precious prescription medications to a useless powder.

The Pillcut Multiple is a top choice not just because of the time-saving aspect of splitting a large number of pills at once. The spring loaded bars center the pills without the user having to do any guesswork.

We had to remove the Medifacx Prorxdisc because while the idea of having multi-shaped cavities for various pill sizes is a good one, the reality is there are hundreds of pill shapes and sizes out there that are always changing.
