Hello there...I can understand your concern. The tablets minipress xl and eslo at should preferably be taken after food. Hypertension is chronic disease. There's no permanent cure for it. So he has continue taking medications regularly. Don't stop it without consulting the physician. Ask him to follow up a salt free diet.
