It's convenient to take one medication instead of 2. I find it to work well. You just need to remember to take it 12 hours apart so not to have your numbers spike, but that's with all medication.

Comment:
I have reduced my medication because of high amounts of exercise. I need to take 1/2 of dosage of 1.25/250 so I cut tablets. However, the brand name is no longer manufactured. I can't take generic - I get wheezing, mucus, nasal swelling and cough from probably the coating or other stuff in pill. Any ideas?
