Brief Answer:
Should strictly follow healthy lifestyle

Detailed Answer:
Dear Mrs,

If you follow healthy lifestyle, use very little salt, exercise much, have no excessive weight, maybe with time it will be possible to reduce your blood pressure medication doses. Rarely we can withdraw medications at all, if bleed pressure regulates 100%.
There are blood pressure medication that can cause cough, they called ACE inhibitors. There is no such medication among your medications.

Wishing you good health
