Brief Answer:
Stopping anti hypertensives can be tried

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

You are receiving a very small dose of Nebistar. I recommend that you stop this drug and re assess your hypertensive status after two days of stopping the drug, you might not require any tablet at all. If the blood pressure at rest is above 140/90 then I recommend that you are started on ACE/ARC like Tab Telmisartan, even more so because your mom died of renal failure

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me
