Answer to your Health Question

Question: I took Monopril for blood pressure for 13 years. My blood pressure was normal during this time. I went without taking it for a short time and noticed my blood pressure was still normal when I took readings daily. I have changed my diet and am exercising more. Can a person experience heart problems from stopping Monopril abruptly? It's been a month since I have taken it. Michelle

Answer: Dear Michelle,

As with any prescription medication, it is not recommended to stop taking a medication without first talking to your doctor. Stopping a medication abruptly can worsen a condition in certain people.

Talk to your doctor about not having taken the medication for a month and about your daily readings. He may decide it is a good idea to stop taking it or maybe reduce your dosage.
