Our expert says:
It is difficult to decide if someone needs to take medications or not without a full medical history. Because your hubby is still 40 pounds overweight, he probably does still need the medications. However you mention that his bp is now normal, so this is one facet that he can discuss with his dr. It is a well known phenomenon that when obese patients lose significant amounts of weight their bp often returns to normal which would make taking antihypertensives unnecessary.
Please convey my warmest wishes to your hubby for his wonderful loss of 50 lb - he is a ***star***.
