A lot of times, if you press evenly on each side of the pill, the pill with break in half. If that doesn't work, try using a knife or razor blade, in a controlled area so that the pill doesn't shoot across the room, and get it started. Once you've sawed your way through 1/4 - 1/3 of it, it should split up pretty easy. Sometimes I just bit it also lol. But if the middle if slightly thicker then the edges, or if its an one, try putting pressure on both ends.

I bought the little gizmo I linked above because I didn’t want to mess around with all this lol.

Cvs or Walgreens, hell even Walmart. Pill splitters are cheap, buy a couple.
