His ECG and Echocardiogram report is normal so what can be done should he start the medicine or not.


A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

Very good question. Read and understood your history that your father in law was suffering from hypertension for which he was taking medicines.
Now that he is off the medicines for such a long time without any problem, normal BP, ECG and all, just have a regular charting of the blood pressure and see if this continues to be normal or no.

Certainly if it rises, consult the Cardiologist.
