I have to reduce the dosage I am taking of quinapril from 20mg to 10mg. Can I do this by cutting a 20mg tablet in half?
If the tablet is Coated (you can find the word on the package or the leaflet of the drug) then you should not cut it into 2 halves.
If the the tablet scored (it has a boundary line in the middle) you can cut it into 2 halves, but be sure that you break them equally
