I have to take Augmentin antibiotic for the next couple days, first time ever.

These pills are pretty big and seem tough to swallow, I was wondering if you can use a pill cutter to cut them in half? There is a line indent on the middle of them so I assume it's okay, just want to check. Thanks!

Yes, scored/ indented pills can be cut or broken in half. The score makes it possible to simply snap the pill in two so if you do not have a pill cutter, I don't think you should waste your time or money getting one. But ONLY scored pills should be cut/ broken in half.
