By losing 20lbs and changing your eating habits. Would a doctor be more willing to take me off this medication?
Unfortunately yes, hypertensive meds are usually taken for life, I have been taking them for over 20 years now, the dose might be less, however it is best to talk to your healthcare provider who knows your medical history, he might give you a milder dose, hope this helps? Best of luck.
