Be very very careful cutting nifedipine in half. If it is the timed release version, it is made of plastic with liquid nifedipine inside. it has a hole drilled in the side of it with a laser beam and is designed to allow it to slowly leak out of the pill. Cutting the pill will dump all the nifedipine at one time and drop your blood pressure far too quickly. ALWAYS ask your pharmacist if it is OK to cut a pill. Usually it is OK if the pill is already scored, but nifedipine is one of the rare ones that cutting can be very dangerous to do.
Some water pills cause your body to dump potassium and mess with your other electrolytes as well. Be very careful to discuss your fasting plans with the doctors who are prescribing these medications. I sympathize with your desire to get well enough to get off the medications but doing so make be tricky. Be very careful. Your water intake does sound high and may be diluting your electrolytes as well. You should be monitored in what you are contemplating. If your doctor will not help, find one that will.

Thanks SO much for this warning note dear Lux, it completely slipped my mind. The Nifedipine formulation, that is. Monitoring electrolytes is of course essential, particularly with high fluid exposure. It's really great having you on board here.
