Has anyone had any experience cutting Lavitra pills in half.
If so, what device did you use and how did it work?
All the ED pills seem to not have the "line" in the middle to
make this easy.
Age 59, psa 4.7 in Jan. 08. Biopsy: one positive sample out of 13. 1% of one sample cancer. Prostate removed on 3/5/08. Nerves spared. Cath out 12 days later. Continence good. Only insurance pad when going out. First erection five days post op and have been improving well since then. Full erection now possible but not as easy to maintain as pre op. But I am pleased with the progress so far. Married to same wonderful woman for 39 years.
She is still beautiful and sexy as ever. A great help in my recovery !!

Hi Bob D,

My wife has a little pill-cutter that she got at the pharmacy.  It works pretty well, except on hard-shelled pills like Viagra.  Even so, saving the money is worth it.

Levitra tablets are fairly small, but I think a good pill-cutter may work.

Good luck!

A pill splitter works great, alternatively (if you have a steady hand) an x-acto knife works to score the pill for easier splitting.

The pill cutter should work on Levitra pills, they are pretty small, but I know a lot of people do get the 20mg and split them.

Thanks for the replies. I will try & score them and cut with a pill cutter.
I think this will be the most inexpensive way to go.
