Can you become dependent on medication that lowers your blood pressure?

Can you become dependent on medication that lowers your blood pressure? i.e. Linsinopril? Clarification... my doctor is unsure if my high blood pressure is genetic or based on my diet . So if I were to improve my diet, in the long run my blood pressure should be normal without the medication. So is it likely that I become dependent on the medication to maintain a normal blood pressure despite diet? Thanks!

No you won't become dependent on it. If you hypertension is totally correctable by life style changes you should be able to wean off your lisinopril. If life style changes are not enough then you will be dependent on the medication to maintain a normal blood pressure.
