The Facts About Cutting Your Pills
As the cost of pharmaceuticals continues to rise, taking advantage of the way drugs are manufactured and priced can save you considerable amounts of money. Most of the cost of pharmaceuticals is wrapped up in research and marketing, not manufacturing. Many drugs are priced the same regardless of the dose because drug manufacturers don’t want cost to be a determining factor when doctor’s are deciding how much of a drug to prescribe. Therefore, a patient can order the larger pill that contains double the dose, split a pill in half and save up to 50%. You might wonder if cutting pills is safe.
