Cutting vitamin pills?

All I take for vitamins is a multi-vitamin, once a day. I think its the Kirkland name brand that I buy at Costco. Can I cut those in half and just take half a day? It has a little line in the middle(perhaps for cutting?). Its a pretty big pill. Any help appreciated. Thanks

If it has a line in it then, yes, it can be split. Some are really big, aren't they. I have to split the calcium tabs cause they are so big.

Pray tell, why would you want to take half of a daily multivitamin ?????

Re: Cutting vitamin pills?

Hi Happy Man, I cut them cause they're too big! Take both halves, though. Just easier that way. Don't know why Teek wants to cut them, I assume the same reason.
I should mention to Teek, never split a time-released pill though. General rule of thumb, but probably exception, is they manufacture the pills with a line so you can split them safely. If it doesn't have the line, better of leaving it as is.
