Thanks for writing to HCmagic.
I have gone through your details and i feel the you feel. Yes it is feasible to stop your medication (nebivolol
2.5 mg per day) but only in consultation with your physician. It is proven fact that quitting tobacco and losing weight are helpful in reducing BP, both of which have been done by you. I want you to stop it under the guidance of your physician only because he will look into other things like existing end organ damage/ birth control pill intake/ current biochemical parameters/possibility of recurrence etc. Moreover you would be required to be vigilant about recurrence of high blood pressure
and get it check periodically because you are on BC pills and you have hypothyroidism
(both can cause high BP
). it is well known that many hypertensive (high BP) patients remain normotensive (normal BP) for variable period of time after stopping their medication.
i hope its clear now. Feel free to discuss further.
