Hi and welcome.Taking one fourth of 40 mg tablet would give almost same dose as 10 mg not 10 grams but usually this tablet is film coated so breaking it would affect its duration and irritability of stomach. So it is not a good idea to use it like this.Let me know if you have further questions.Please do not forget to leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish you good health.
