I'VE BEEN TAKING LISINOP/hCTZ 10-20 FOR A YEAR FOR ISOLATED HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, IT WAS 160 OVER 8O AND WITH DRUG IS 140 OVER 70 TO 75. WOULD LIKE TO GET OFF THIS DRUG AND USE DIET TO CONTROL BLOOD PRESSURE. hOW DO i SAFELY WEAN MYSELF OFF THIS DRUG?
There is no diet that will control your blood pressure. If you are overweight or obese, then diet and exercise with emphasis on weight loss will be helpful. Even then, weight loss may not be a perfect or complete solution to your blood pressure control, so I recommend you work with your doctor if you are planning to do that.
