Benicar - Can I cut a 40mg in half? Now only taking 20mg?

The general rule is if its not scored (line down the middle) you cant cut it.
This is usually because it has a special coating.
I have taken Benicar this way for years (with my doctor's permission). I also use Benicar HCTZ this way. If you are on top of your BP readings it not only saves money but I do it when my BP gets too low from the 40mg.
