In general, scored..: ..tablets can always be split in half. Oxycodone 10 mg. Does have scoring (line down middle of pill) so yes you can split it with a pill cutter. If the tablet is not scored then, although it can be cut with a pill cutter and many people may do this, the pill should NOT be cut. Check with your pharmacist or physician but in this case you should be able to split the pill.

How do you: Rationalize that you are concerned about your "fitness" and yet you have purchased something that you don't know what it is, what it's supposed to do, how you're going to tell if it's working, or what harm it could cause you? Don't pour supplements, potions, and possible poisons into your body. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet.
