Hello, Jeromey! How are you? What are the markings on it?

In theory, it should be okay to do so, since this is not a time released medication, but you should never do so, without your doctor, or pharmacist's approval. Why do you want to decrease your dose?

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension.
