Pill splitting program of University of Michigan can save money

Pill splitting program developed by University of Michigan could save lot of money but pharmaceutical companies are not happy with the program as they feel that the new program will cause them heavy loss in profits.//

The University of Michigan feels that the new program will help save lots of money to the health care industry and also to the health plan members as the drugs at different doses cost the same amount and splitting the drugs to the required doses saves lot of money though many of them has been for a long time using their drugs by splitting the pill the University program comes as an official message which could help reduce health care costs.

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.

The pharmaceutical industry is not happy with the new program as they feel that the new program will cause heavy loss to the pharmaceutical industry and they feel splitting the drugs are not safe as the splits may be wrongly done which may lead to high dosage and lead to adverse effects. Researchers feel that splitting of drugs could be very useful but caution has to be taken regarding the use of split drugs by discussing with the physician, as there are some drugs that could be split and some drugs that should not be split.
