It isn't all about taking medication. When you stop the meds you still need to control your blood pressure and this team can still help or you can continue to be a mentor to other team members. All SparkPeople teams continue to help or be helped by it's team members. I get the team emails, most the time I delete them but this time I wanted to know why someone was saying "Bye and thanks". Hope to continue seeing you here, occasionally.

BEBARB, you could stay with the team and encourage others by telling them it does happen.

emoticon I'm so delighted to read that someone has gotten off of their medication!!! I'll be seeing my doctor next month on the 7th and I'm going to talk with her about cutting something back, as I really don't feel I need both of the medications any longer. Perhaps, I would've lost enough weight for her to take me off of every bp medication. I'm not sure what she will do, as she a new doctor for me, and you can never tell, until after the first visit.

GOOD LUCK AND GOD'S SPEED,

Be blessed,

That's great! My pills had started making me dizzy and I quit taking them and my BP was pretty good last time I took it!

So happy for you. I have an aortic stenosis and will never be off BP meds but for those who can do so good on you.

Bye, all. I just got off my last blood pressure pill. Yes! So nice to have all that tiredness, achiness gone. Thanks for all the help! Good luck. I hope many of you are soon able to join me in quitting this team.
