Equate is a Walmart produced generic (for example Equate Pain Reliever is likely acetaminophen or ibuprofen). Equate is not the name of the drug. We would need the name of the drug to answer your question.
You will need to look on the packet and see if it says any words like "long acting" or "extended release". If it does then no you shouldn't cut the tablet in half, if it doesn't then yes you could cut the tablet in half.
