I think this is a decision you and your father should make together. Obviously, his doctor thinks he needs it, but if your father doesn't want to take it, I don't think you can "make" him. I do know that the medicine cannot be stopped abrubtly because it can cause serious cardiac complications. Other than this, I'd find out why he no longer wants to take it and discuss his reasons with the doctor. Hope this helps.
