Does anyone have any suggestions for getting blood pressure meds without seeing a Dr every three to six months? I have been on the same RX for the last 5 years with no changes and no problems at all.

Unfortunately, no. It is completely normal for your doctor to want to see you for a checkup several times a year, before continuing to prescribe a medication, especially since blood pressure medications could cause some issues, such as dehydration, low electrolytes, and kidney problems.

You can learn more about the benefits, and possible risks on Heart.org.

But regardless of the type of medication(s) someone is taking, doctors always want to see someone regularly to monitor their condition.

How often does your doctor currently ask you to come in?
