Many meds lose their potency when cut in half and become worthless. Is that true of Cialis or can a 20mg pill be cut in half leaving 2 10mg pills.

I'm am not a doctor yet but am in school to become one. If a pill is not scored to be cut (has little lines) then it should not be cut. When pills are made and pressed, they have a mix of chemicals in them some might not be as distributed as others. Thus, cutting a unscored pill might and most likely will diminish its potency. It's egg shaped for a reason. It won't harm you. It just may be lacking is all. It doesn't have an enteric coating so there's no time release.
