Do not stop the BP medications on your own, consult a good physician. The dose of his BP medicines needs to be adjusted.

Blood pressure is not a disease. IT can be controlled easily with diet and exercise but do not stop the medication. IF it becomes low, you may give him lemon juice or tea. It will help him to give him energy. Ask him to drink lots of water and liquids.
