Thanks for writing to us.
You should not alter the medications dose without consulting the physician who has prescribed you these. Serial blood pressure monitoring is needed before and after doing any dosage changes. Self medication or reduction of doses is harmful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
