you can surely off your medicines
120- 130/80-89 is called prehypertension stage , in this stage life style modification should be carried out( less salt intake, stop smoking/alcohol, weight loss, regular aerobic exercise, rich fiber, veg diet)
please check your blood pressure every month, if bp increases above 140/90 , start your medicines.
