I have been off and on blood pressure medication for four years....currently on it right now. There are things you can do to lower your blood pressure naturally such as diet and exercise and maybe you can get to the point where you can stop taking it. Do some research and talk to your doctor but yes, it is possible to quit taking it if you can control it other ways. Good luck!
