My health care provider pressured me to save money for them by getting the larger doseage and then splitting the pill in half. Thus, I now needed a pill splitter.

This works great for all sizes. Cuts well. I wish it were a tad smaller so I could carry it in my purse.

I take many large pills, and have to split all of them. I was looking for something durable - this is NOT it! The plastic guard, which is supposed to move as the unit is opened and closed developed a "kink," and so has to be guided EVERY time I split a pill. This is very annoying when one must cut as many pills as I do. I will be looking for something better.

Comments about Apex Ultra Pill Splitter, 1 ea:

I'm about to order but I'm perplexed that what I consider an(the?) ultimate test for such a device is not mentioned in 19 reviews.
Cialis pills are insanely expensive and designed to be VERY difficult to split accurately.
When mine arrives I'll report.

Pros

  • Easy To Use

Cons

  • Chips Pills Off
  • Doesn't Split Evenly
  • Makes A Mess

Best Uses

  • Daily Use

Comments about Apex Ultra Pill Splitter, 1 ea:

This pill spliter does an adequate job, but not a great job. I use it to split Aspirin. It chips off part of the Aspirin and makes a mess. I have not found a pill spliter that doesn't do this. I was hoping this one would do a better job.

Difficult for small pills

      Comments about Apex Ultra Pill Splitter, 1 ea:

      A piece fell off and I couldn't figure out how to put it back in. When used with small pills, the pieces can fly out the back. When moving the cutter lever, a click that it makes can bump the pill out of position.

      Comments about Apex Ultra Pill Splitter, 1 ea:

      I love this pill cutter. It is the most accurate, easy-to-use pill cutter I've ever used. I think it's because the "holder" area is made from a "rubbery" substance which holds the pill tight, exactly where you want it. There is also a film "diverter" of sorts, which guides the pill to the holding container below. Great design.

      The cons are that while the overall design is sturdy, the film gets tangle and breaks easily, so once that happens, that function no longer works. Not the end of the world, but not as nice as it was. Also, the blade dulls quickly with no way to replace it or sharpen it, so after a while, the pill dust and fragment breakage starts to get increase. Again, not the end of the world.

      Even with a dull blade and the film thingy gone, it's STILL the greatest pill cutter I've ever used and cuts the most difficult or tiny pills very accurately. Highly recommend.

          The Apex split my pills very easily. But after only 4 months of light usage, the blade guard broke. It is too dangerous to use without the blade guard...rendering it useless.

              The cutter has a surface which does not allow the pill to slide. That's a good thing once the pill is in there, but it makes it hard to line the pill up. Beyond that, it cuts well and has storage for that extra half pill you get every other week.
