When can I stop taking Aceon?

In most cases, if you have high blood pressure you will need to be on a medication, such as Aceon (perindopril), for life. Although lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy, low-sodium diet and getting more exercise can help control blood pressure, once medication becomes necessary it usually remains so. Even if you're feeling fine, don't stop taking Aceon, or lower your dose, without your doctor's input. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors such as Aceon are just one of many types of medications that can control blood pressure. If you're unhappy about taking Aceon, you can discuss other treatment options with your doctor, but don't just stop taking the drug.
