When can I stop taking blood pressure pills?

  • AMichael Roizen, MD, Internal Medicine, answered
    Many of my patients can stop using blood pressure pills after they start exercising and eating properly, because they lose weight, and physical activity lets their arteries get years younger, as do appropriate medications. A crucial step in taking medications is not to alter the way you're taking the medications without your physician's knowledge and consent. Quitting any medication abruptly can put enormous stress on your body and cause unnecessary aging. That can be life-threatening.
