This is a good article with some good hints and the title should have received a little attention here as the cost for either the 50 or 100mg of Viagra is the same so if the small dose works, then the pill slicer out and at $15 to $18.00 a pill, it’s still an imageexpenditure. 

If one is losing hair, the can save on Propecia and get a generic drug, Proscar which is used to treat the prostate gland if enlarged but has the same active ingredient so one could “quarter” these pills and take a quarter of a pill a day and it would save around $500 a year versus the name brand.  Those were just a couple of the items in the article and the 2 that references “pill cutting”.  The pharmacists suggested going for the generics too as the only difference is the dye and fillers as the drug is the same and it has to be no more than 10% of having no variance.  BD 

To bring down your monthly cash outlay, start slicing and dicing your pills. Viagra, for instance, costs the same—$10 to $18 per pill—whether you buy it in 50-or 100-milligram form, says Josh Pacosa, Pharm.D., a pharmacist in Asheville, North Carolina. "Have your doctor prescribe the 100-milligram pill, and then cut the pills in half," he says. This can save you hundreds of dollars a year.
