If you have been prescribed a dose of ½ of a Minoxidil tablet, you will be supplied with a pill splitter. Your medication instructions will also be clear that you will be taking ½ of a tablet for each dose if you are supposed to split the tablet. In order to use the pill splitter, simply open the device and place 1 Minoxidil tablet at the tip of the “v” groove on the side of the splitter opposite the blade to secure the tablet. If your tablet is scored, try to line the score facing up with where the blade will land to make a more even cut. Then, carefully close the pill splitter firmly on a flat surface in order to split the tablet into two halves. Take the ½ tablet dose by mouth as prescribed and store the other half either back in your tablet bottle or in the storage groove in your splitter until you need your next dose. Be careful of the blade during this entire process to avoid cutting yourself. Store the pill splitter and all medications away from children and pets.
