Not on your own: You must be supervised by your treating physician. Certain blood pressure medications can cause dangerous rebound effects if tapered or discontinued improperly.

Adjustment, time: Depends on how long you have been on this medication. You need to go back to dopctor for adjustment of dosage or even change to combination med.Furthermore your doctor can order blood test as well as x-ray to find out other cause of your blood pressure
