Abrupt with drawl of hypertensive medication/s is not recommended as you are using it for last ten ten years , it can result in sudden rise of BP, and the complication can not only be a heart attack but also CVA (brain stroke). SO DON'T GIVE UP YOUR MEDICATION/S , EVEN A DOCTOR WILL NOT ADVISE YOU TO GET OFF THE PILLS, NO EXPERIMENTATION.
