Stopping all meds due to side effects.

Q: I have been exercising and watching my diet and have lost 16 lbs. I take blood pressure meds, but have been having frequent bouts of light headedness and low blood pressure readings (87/54) Should I stop the meds all together?

A: You need to talk to your doctor. It sounds like with the lifestyle changes you have made you no longer need as much medication. Your doctor can advise you on how to safely change your dose. It is not safe to stop certain blood pressure medicines all at once.
