Is lowering of blood pressure medication advisable?

I am 76 yrs. of age. Male. I take 1x 2.5mg coversyl & 1x 1.25 mg. bicor daily & 20mg. Lasix each second day. My blood pressure readings at 8a.m. average 145/75 p.60. Is this normal? I was taking higher doses & my blood pressure was down around 120/60 p.55 but on the advice of my renal physician I dropped the dosages to the above. David
