Task at HandOn occasion, you may have to cut a pill in two without the use of a pill cutter, but you should not do so very often. According to the Denver Post, you will probably get the correct dosage only 32 percent of the time.Hold the Pill SteadyExamine the pill to see if it is scored through the middle. This will look like a line or depression down the center of the pill. Choose a sharp, serrated knife or utility knife. Place the pill on a cutting board with the score line up, if there is one. Hold the pill steady with your index finger and thumbPlace Downward PressureSlowly place the blade of the knife on the score line or in the center of the pill and exert a steady, downward pressure, being careful to keep your fingers out of the way of the blade.Keep the rest of the hand holding the pill cupped around the pill so that the two halves don't go flying when you cut it.
