Can I stop taking high blood pressure medications?

Patient: If u are on high blood pressure meds for 20yrs. can u be taken off competely without being winged off?

 

 

Doctor: I would not advise you to stop the blood pressure medication without consulting your doctor first. The sudden withdrawal of blood pressure medications can rapidly increase heart rate and blood pressure and potentially cause angina or heart attack.
