Maybe someone needs to make a pill guillotine....

I've done pretty well in the past, but perhaps because I'll do all the splitting I need to do at once instead of every day (or every other day). Maybe practice makes perfect.

It's not the pdocs who make the money, tho -- it's the HMOs and their prescription plans. For example, when I was on 150mg/day of zoloft, my plan wouldn't cover 90 50mg pills for a single prescription. They'd force me to get 100mg pills since the 100mg pills cost almost the same as the 50's (and not twice the price, as you might expect).

The other problem is the result of the splitting. Can't remember the report's source, but I recall hearing that splitting pills, even well-split down a score line, can result in widely varying dosages from day to day.

Feckin' HMOs ...
