Tarka 180/2 tablet

I know that the tablet must not be split, but it is too much for me, and I split it in 2 pieces and take one half every evening, combined with another medicine for HT which I use in the morning. What may cause the fact that I split the film coated tablet please? As far as I know, there is no lower dosage for this medicine. And if I use one whole tablet every evening, than my tension is getting too low. Please advise

Blood Thinner Anticoagulant

Is Tarka an anticoagulant? I am getting a knee surgery on March 20 and I am supposed not to take any anticoagulant two weeks before March 20. Should I stop my high blood pressure medicine for those two weeks? Please answer ## Goodness no! Please consult your doctor. Tarka contains Trandolapril and Verapamil and while they do have some effect on circulation, they are not blood thinners. In addition, if your blood pressure is out of control, they will not perform the surgery. Did you talk to your doctor?
