If you drive screws into the edge of MDF it will split very easily. I have drilled pilot holes for a firm but loose fit for the screws and then put yellow glue into the holes and insert the screw. The MDF soaks up the glue rather quickly and within an hour it is pretty solid. A bit off the norm, but has worked for me.

P.S. The screws are not removable since they are glued in. It just shreds the MDF around the hole. Don’t ask…
