Is it necessary to take medicines for hypertension regularly?

Q: My husband has high blood pressure. He is 36 years old and advised to take Losar-H and S-Numlo. He takes these tablets regularly. Till what range of blood pressure can he stay without tablets if it rises suddenly?

A:Resting (after 5 minutes of rest in a mentally relaxed state) blood pressures do not fluctuate widely. High BP needs treatment with drugs, if it is more than 140/90 mm/Hg. Of course lifestyle changes like decreasing salt, exercising regularly, maintaining ideal body weight, consuming fruits vegetables and no fat milk & yoga are of utmost importance especially in young people. Not treating hypertension is not clever. With lifestyle changes if your BP remains less than 130/80 mm/Hg, you can always decrease drugs and see which way the BP moves.
