I have gone through your query and understood your concerns. As your lab reports are normal now you can lower the dose but only after consulting your treating doctor. 70MG is a medium dose and you will get lesser dose than this in market. After examining you your doctor may prescribe you other drug or the same by lowering the dose. Thank you.
