Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir,I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns .. yes you can cut it into two halves and take only a half provided that it is in a film coated tablet form and not in capsule form..
however you should expect that half a tablet will be less effective that the full tablet in a dose dependent manner . I hope I answered your question. if you don't have any other clarifications then please close the discussion.

Brief Answer:
Half the daily dose

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, from what I understand you want to decrease your daily dose into half so splitting the tablet will not lead to an overodose since your daily dose has been decreased into only half the regular dose you used to take ..I hope you find this helpful.
