Anyone take metoprolol in a real low dose and split the pills?

I am wondering if anyone takes metoprolol in a real low dose. I was taking 12.5 mg twice a day. Now I take 6.25 mg twice a day. I have to cut the pill into 4ths which is not so easy. Does taking 6.25 mg lasts for 12 hours until next pill? I had seen my dr a few weeks ago and asked that and he seemed okay with it. I asked a pharmacist who said with that low dosage and if your bp is okay, one wouldn't need to take it at all. I was put on metoprolol after lisiniprol(on it for one month) made my bp too low and my heart rate was up so a PA changed it to metoprolol. I have been on it since January. I see dr next month and am hoping to get off it all together. Thanks, Pam
