High blood pressure?

Why would your blood pressure go to low all of a sudden. if you have  high bp and are on meds to try to keep it low. If it went to low does that mean you no longer need the meds any more.

    Going low one time would not always indicate the need to change medication.

    Only a doctor should decide if medication should be stopped or changed.  A doctor would do a physical and determine if something may have changed.  (perhaps weight loss improved blood pressure - or a change in jobs reduced stress and reduced blood pressure).  A doctor would try to decide if there was a reason the blood pressure is lower and try to determine how likely that lower patter would be continued.

    Sometimes a lower dose might be recommended before actually stopping the medication.  

  • Always consult your doctor before changing your BP medication.  Suddenly stopping can be life threatening. High blood pressure can be caused by stress.  Perhaps you've become more laid back.
