Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking this medicine if you have been told you have high blood pressure when you lie down. If this applies to you then:
Regular monitoring of your blood pressure when you are lying down and when you are standing up will be required as there may be a risk of your blood pressure rising when you lie down, for example, at night. If your blood pressure does go up when you lie down and reducing the dose does not correct this problem, then treatment with this medicine must be stopped.
Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or our pharmacist if you are not sure. Swallow tablets with a drink of water. This medicine may be taken with or without food.
The scoreline is only to facilitate breaking for ease of swallowing and not to divide into equal doses.
