I am an XXXXXX 73 year old having benign prostate enlargement .I am taking Dutas T twice a day for the last 10 weeks. Since Last 3 months have been taking, Strovas 20 and Nicardia Retard 20mg twice a day after having taken Nicardia Retard 10 mg once a day for the last 15 years. Since Dutas T also reduces BP can I reduce the Nicardia retard 20 dosage to once a day?

You have to monitor your blood pressure and if you find that BP has gone down or low then you must reduce the dose of nicardia retard,but only after discussing with your treating doctor.
