Brief Answer: Acceptable Detailed Answer: Dear Friend. Hi , I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern. You can break your tablet into 2 halves and consume it , if you are supposed to take it in half dosage. It is usually acceptable , until and unless specified not to do by the pharmaceutical company. However , you should discuss with your doctor , if you are deciding to reduce your dosage yourself. As , the dose is decided on the basis of your blood pressure. This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any query you may please ask me. Stay Healthy. Dr Anshul Varshney , MD
