It depends: If you have been taking this beta blocker for any length of time you definitely need to taper. If you have angina be especially careful and consult with your doctor. Please share your intention to taper with your physician first anyway. Benicar (olmesartan) may be enough for your high bp. Beta blockers, in general, are not weight friendly.
