Hi, sorry that you are having such difficulties. No I have not come off of my blood pressure medication & am now also on a "cardiac cocktail". I am struggling with angina & have recently had an angioplasty with a drug eluting stent. I continue to exercise as much as possible & eat a healthy diet, but my coronary artery disease is congenital, so it seems unlikely that I will ever be drug free again.

I would strongly encourage you to keep working with your doctor to control your blood pressure. Untreated hypertension may possibly lead to much worse issues. There are lots of treatment options there & you may want to ask about attending a hypertension clinic to work with a team on diet, nutrition & exercise to help with bringing your blood pressure under control. Good Luck. I hope you are successful soon.
