... 116 over 83 .Should he still continue taking his meds even though it's not high?

Absolutely! As the others have said, his blood pressure has been good because he has been taking his medicine. Like many others on this site, I suffer from chronic daily pain among other things. I've found that when I'm having an especially hard time with my pain, or when I'm sick, my blood pressure will spike. Sometimes to close to dangerously high levels. There's no telling what could have happened had I not been taking my bp meds already. It's hardly worth the risk when it's no more than taking a pill, right?
I hope this helps answer your question.

Absolutely he should continue to take it. That is probably why his blood pressure is under control. However, I will say for me... I was able to come off blood pressure meds after losing a bunch of weight (like 92 lbs.). I will say too and as Lisa has also mentioned, if there is pain involved then blood pressure will yoo-yoo with the level of pain. That puts a lot of stress on the body to be in constant pain.
But then you said that last night it was high. So, it sounds like for the most part it is being controlled. But then sometimes it isn't. I'd stay on the med but also talk with the doctor. I don't like stopping meds without informing the doctor with some good reasons why. You didn't mention what other conditions he is dealing with that he has high blood pressure. I'd rather be safe than sorry.
Hope that helps some and I wish you both good health and peace in your world.
