Pill Cutter Safety and Quality Control
Medifacx PRORX Disc Pill Cutter, founded in late 2013 and launched in late 2015, has tens of thousands of customers worldwide.
Each quarter, we spend thousands of dollars on social media, building our brand to support our retail, catalog, and internet sellers.
Our digital spend rate includes YouTube, Google, Facebook, and live videos on Amazon, along with the same video on all of the catalog internet sites.
Other pill cutters constrain the pill in a way that can cause breakage when cutting. PRORX Disc Pill Cutter disc cavities offer a freer fit that allows halves to “move,” reducing or eliminating damage.
Simplicity is the best design. The Medifacx 18 in 1 Disc and our unique beveled and curved blade, with the Safe-T-Guard self-retracting blade system, has International patent pending and other patents pending protection.

Does the PRO RX Disc Pill Cutter come in other colors?
The red base is the only color available at this time. It is made of a plastic called polycarbonate.
Why is the Disc that you sell as a single item come in a different color?
We produce that item in a Green color so they are easy to identify for other family members and pets. When required either Disc the gray or green Disc is easily removable by lifting if off the center post. To replace just slide it down onto the post for placement and align it up with the razor blade cutting slot for the correct size and shape cavity you require.
What is the Blade made of?
The unique curved/crescent shape blade is made of Stainless Steel with a rigid hardness specification. We have found that a crescent shape blade cuts more evenly and creates less breakage than a straight edge blade.
Could I cut myself on the razor blade?
Whenever there is a razor blade attached to a product one needs to be careful. Our Pill Cutter razor blade has a Safe-T-Blade self retracting blade system to protect the user. Always keep out of the reach of children!
Is it easy to keep the PRO RX Disc Pill Cutter clean?
YES. Just remove the Disc from the base and clean the base and the lid as a unit and the disc with warm soapy water, rinse throughly and allow to air dry. It is not dishwasher proof.
How did you come up with the different size and shapes of the cavities to mold into the Disc?
By talking to pharmacists, pill manufacturers, focus groups and using an industry chart of the 50 most popular pills that people take worldwide. Combine this information and you will be able to cut 90% or more of your pills. The cavities are located on both sides of the Disc.
If I need to cut a pill in quarters (1/4) to save money on my meds. or reduce the mg., will I be able to do it with the Disc?
YES. Just choose the correct size and shape cavity and cut. Keep in mind that our PRO RX Disc Pill Cutter is the only pill cutter on the market that gives you this type flexibility.
Why do the pills pop out of the top of the lid?
We have designed the lid so that the cut pills can be retrieved by turning over the entire pill cutter and catching them in our Pill Catch Cup (included) with our pill cutter or in your hand. Easy to retrieve cut pills and ready for the next pill to cut.
Why do we need extra Pill Catch Cups?
Medifacx also sells reusable Pill Catch Cups, 2 in a package so there is no cross contamination when cutting pills for other family members or pets. These extra cups are listed on our Product Page for you to purchase. These cups are strong, easy to clean and are very affordable.
