Q: I have lost 25 lbs. I walk regularly, avoid salt, sugar, and fats. My bp is 102/65. Should I stop my meds?
A: You should not stop your blood pressure medicine without talking to your doctor. It is possible with life style changes and weight loss blood pressure medicine can be lowered or stopped. This needs to be done under the supervision of a doctor as it is dangerous to stop certain blood pressure medicines all at once.
