For 6 years I was taking Losar H 1 tab (morning) And Amtas AT 25 1 tab (at night). With these two tabs my BP used to be 130/80. Whenever I tried to reduce the dose my BP use to spike upwards. Since Jan 15 I started exercises like brisk walking, climbing hills, aerobics and weight training. During one year as per my doctor's advice Amtas AT 25 was stopped as BP readings came down to as low as 110/70. Now with only Losar H in the morning my readings are 115/75. Can exercise reduce BP dose?

Hello, Sham! How are you?

Yes, exercise can lower it for some people and so can dietary improvements.

Long-term use of the medications creates the risk of liver and kidney damage, or failure, according to the U.S. FDA, so diet and exercise are actually much safer.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Thanks Verwon for your response. I am fine. My BP continues to be under control with reduced medication. Since Jan 15 I started brisk walking including 1 km. hill climbing. I walk 10 km per day (5 times in a week). I also do exercises for flexibility, endurance, stretching & weight training. All this has brought down my weight from 84 kg to 72 kg during 1 year. My recent stress test results are much better than earlier test carried out in the year 2009. I am also controlling my diet. Now I am convinced, if we give attention to fitness & diet, at initial stage of hypertension, we can avoid medication. I still do not know whether we can totally get rid of medication by changing our lifestyle.

I was taking Losar H - 1 tab in morning and Amtas AT 25 - 1 tab at night since yr 2009. I started brisk walking (8 to 10 kms per day, 5 times in a week) & weight exercises since Jan '15. As per doctor's advice Amtas AT 25 was progressively stopped and I am now only Losar H 1 tab in morning. My BP readings are consistently 125/80. But my resting heart beats are as low as 56. Is it due to Losar H side effects or due to exercise? I do not have any other problem.
