Hello
Welcome to Ask a Doctor service
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
As long as the blood pressure medicine is concern it has to be prescribed by cardiologist or physician. Once the medicine suggested by doctor then you are not suppose to change it or adjust the dose, if you are having some doubt then you can discuss this with doctor, physician taking all the care and healthy safety for the patient, they are the final judge knew the pharmacology and every thing about the drugs prescribe to drug, if you do not have any symptoms then why to worry, and creating the doubt.
Hope I have answered your query, let me know for further assistance.

My daughter aged 46, is a mess. She has a chemical imbalance. She is on drugs and can t get off them. Her ex husband has been giving her morphine and it makes her feel better. Then she goes through withdrawal and is feeling very badly and so he gives her another morphine pill . Two days ago she slit her wrists and the police came and called an ambulance and took her to the hospital. The next morning the hospital released her. She needs help. She can t work, has no money and no insurance. I am her 75 year old mother who lives 50 miles away from her. I am so afraid that she will die unless she gets help. What can I do.
