the best thing to do is to see your doctor. your blood pressure may be reading normal but that's probly due to the medication. please don't gamble with your health and risk having a stroke or heart attack. hope this was helpful. best of luck
Rightly answered, I stopped my pressure meds & paid a heavy price, landed up with a stroke, please do seek medical advice before you stop to take pressure meds. High or low blood pressure is a equally bad.
Your blood pressure is normal because you are taking your medication as directed. A normal reading is the goal of the medication. The only way you should ever stop taking your medication is at your doctor's direction.
Not a good idea this is probably whats controlling your BP and keeping it under control soon as you get off it, it might drop quick so no do not DC unless a doc advises you to.
