I know that with regard to cut up 5 mg finasteride pills, you recommend that pills are only cut up one at a time, to avoid excess hydration of the pill fragments with vapour in the air.
I have a question about the storage of the three pill fragments each time a pill is cut (assuming it is cut into quarters). Right now, I just leave the pill fragments inside the pill cutter, but would it be more effective to store them in an airtight container for three days? Or does it not make a considerable difference, given the short timeframe of storage?
It might not make that much of a difference if you’re cutting one pill at a time (which is what you should do), but I would err on the side of caution and store the fragments in an airtight pill bottle.
