Is it safe to cut a 10 mg. pill of lisinopril in half to make it a 5 mg. pill?

Although it is not recommended, yes you can cut a 10mg lisinopril tablet into half to take a 5mg dose. There are 5mg tablets available though.

I saw a paper out on this very subject last week as Marvell said they do discourage this but I was once on Lisinopril and I had a pill cutter and I happen to be in the doctors office and the nurse told me to use that to be as accurate as possible. with best wishes,
