My doctor suggested lowering the dose because I'm having a side effect (blinking) but I didn't think I needed to. Now it's worse and I want to lower the dose tonight.
Can I cut a 2mg tablet of risperidone in half to get 1mg or do I need a new percription?

As long as the pill is scored you can break it in half. The score makes sure there is the same amount of medicine in each half once it is cut.
As long as its a plain tablet you can. It should have a score marking to cut it.
