Mike, like many other prescription drugs, Lexapro costs about the same regardless of the dose. A 20 mg pill and a 10 mg pill of Lexapro cost the same. So you can save a lot of money by cutting.

I have lots of pill cutting experience. Some pills, such as Celexa, are made to be easily broken in 2 equal parts by hand. But Lexapro has to be cut in half. One way is to use a pill cutter from the drug store. But they are not very accurate with small pills such as Lexapro.

The easiest and most accurate method is to use a razor blade knife. Put the pill on a flat surface such as the back of a glass plate or plastic plate. Then cut the Lexapro in half along the pill's perforation. Do not cut at an angle. Cut straight down.
