Pill Splitters & Crushers

Trying to split pills with a knife can be frustrating and dangerous. Pill splitters make it easier to precisely reduce dosages and aid swallowing, while crushers enable older adults to pulverize pills with minimal waste.

Some pill splitters and crushers have special features such as:

  • Built-in magnifiers
  • Attached dosage bowls for mixing and drinking
  • Combined splitter/crushers
  • Screw-cap grinding
