Do You Have a Favorite Pill Splitter?

2 months ago

Our 'chopper' is a blue plastic cylinder shape. It still works, but no blade lasts forever. I like that it's not too 'fiddly' to grip with old hands, although much of the size is due to it housing a pill crusher and pill storage. I just want an accurate splitting function for small pills -- think zolpidem 5mg.

I see some splitters with two blades that cut from above and below. There's one that cuts from the sides, but it requires you to position the pill without any 'guides'. These are double the price of one like ours -- worth it If they are more accurate than the 'guillotine' type. That's a factor when you're splitting a $22 pill.
