Level of blood pressure to reduce medications.

Q: At what blood pressure level might doctors consider lowering dosages of medications? I’ve been responding well with medication, diet, and exercise. My last reading 2 days ago was 112/72.

A: Many factors need to be considered before changing a blood pressure treatment plan. Examples include how long your blood pressure has been in control, how hard it was to get your pressure in control, your family history of heart attacks and strokes, and other medical problems. Your blood pressure is in good control now. It is hard to argue with success.
