Hi there...high blood pressure is a very serious condition. It can lead to very serious complications like stroke and sometimes even death. Firstly you have change your lifestyle. Start doing yoga, meditation, low salt diet and avoid junk food. Secondly take all the medications as prescribed by the physician and follow up regularly. Get your blood pressure checked regularly. Once it is undercontrol, the doctor will slowly reduce the tablets. If your body can sustain it and maintain the blood pressure then physician will slowly wean you off the tablets. Never stop taking the tablets on your own. You will only harm yourself and your family.
