I found a good pill cutter which doesn't have a name on it, so I can't give you a brand name, but I bought in the CVS pharmacy. It is white, with what looks like a scored pill (a circle with a split down the middle) on top. I wish I could draw the shape for you, but my computer can't do this.

You open it up, it has a hinge on the back, put the pill in an inverted V-shaped partition, and then you close the lid (which holds a mini razor blade) and the pill is split evenly down the center.

I have done this on 150 mg Wellbutrin pills to give a 75 mg dose. Then I take the 75 mg half and slice that in half to give me approx. 37.5 mg. Then I take a half (75mg) and a quarter pill(37.5) to approximate 100mg. It's not exact but as close as I need to be.

I agree splitting pills can save alot of money.
