Regularly taking your medications is what keeping your BP in control.Kindly do not stop the medication.Suggest get your pressure checked by a doctor at least once a month using a mercury blood pressure machine and get your lipid profile done at least once every three months.

Hi welcome to Healthcare magic

You must continue all the above given medications.. since the BP is in control , continue the same medicines.. The treatment for Hypertension is life long.... In case if you stop the anti hypertensives then it may result in sudden rise in BP leading to complication of stroke, Renalfailure etc... hence you need to follow it... salt is restricted in BP patients...
