No, you shouldn't discontinue it, unless your doctor has specifically instructed you to do so.

If it's the only thing keeping your blood pressure at normal levels, it's just going to go back up again, if you stop the medication.

Additionally, if you just stop taking it abruptly, it could cause a rebound effect that could result in dangerously elevated blood pressure levels and heart rate, which could put your life in danger.

Are there any other questions or concerns?

I tapered myself off from 40mg of lisinoprol daily. After I had a pancreatitis attack, I lost 30 lbs in 2 weeks an BP was 80/50. So, I took myself off and BP is running 116/70. But don't go too fast.
