High blood pressure - Into the future: Maintaining treatment

Q. Once my high blood pressure has been lowered will I stay on the same treatment for the rest of my life?

A. If your high blood pressure remains under control and you are happy with your treatment, it is likely that you will stay on the same treatment - until circumstances change.

You will still need to see your doctor or nurse for regular check ups, either every year or every six months.  At these check ups your nurse or doctor will check your blood pressure and make sure you are still happy with your treatment.

Sometimes your blood pressure can rise, or may become more difficult to control, in which case your treatment will need to be looked at and changed. You may also need to change treatment if you become pregnant or develop any other medical problems.
