How do I know for sure my body needs blood pressure medication and can I just stop taking it?

Several months ago my blood pressure bolted quite high and stayed that way for a couple of weeks. I went to my clinic to check it out and they put me on blood pressure medication. Since then, my BP has been quite low, sometimes as low as 85/53. I honestly don't think I need the medication to regulate my BP, I think I was going through a tough time when it was high. What can I do to figure this out?
