Instead of you reducing your tablets by your own, ask your physician if he could do it. Many a times, reducing the dosages cause blood sugar level to shoot up.

In my opinion, reduction should be done if:
The tablets don't suit you..
The dose causes frequent hypoglycemia.
If there is any contraindication to the tablet.
