Hi, Leo,
If you have hypertension and doctor prescribed medicine for that,
and you have stopped taking medicine.this is not proper,you have to take medicine.
for some time you may not feel any problem but after some time bp will shoot up and may create problem.
I advice to continue the medicine and go for checking up of bp,in future dose can be reduced.
High bp can give rise to so many problems in future,
ok and bye.
