Well you didnt say what your readings are, but I know Ive heard that in some cases, no matter what you do medicine, eat right, etc, some people just cant bring it down no matter how well they are following the rules. Just because a person is fit, and living well doesnt mean they cant get a illness or nothing bad can happen to them. I wouldnt get off meds unless doc says so. And as for the amount. Hey isnt your life worth the money? I know it sucks, but if you really have high BP
at least you can control it and live a healthy life. Good Luck!
