Several studies had shown that splitting tablets are mostly found to be beneficial; a study conducted in the department of Veterans Affairs in 3,787 patients who were taking simvastatin tablets found splitting their tablets had no difference in their health conditions and saved lot of money on drugs. A study funded by University of Michigan that was conducted by HaeMi Choe on 110 patients taking statin drugs found to have no negative health effects and most of the study patients were happy about the money saving due to pill splits.
