Hello, Its not too early to start BP medicines.  High BP is a hereditary problem. Unhealthy lifestyle is just a precipitating factor. If your BP is constantly high then you will need BP medicines ultimately for lifetime. Whether or not it can be managed temporarily on lifestyle changes depends upon your current weight, physical activity,  eating habits etc. Consult online directly for further advice. Keep your focus on keeping your BP in control and not on stopping medicines Take care.  Stay safe.  Have a great day
