It's been 24 hours since taking my last blood pressure med. (Losartan 100mg) my Bp is 127/65. Should I take my Bp again or will the 65 get too low?

In brief: Hypertension

The reported BP is fine, a diastolic of 65 is admirable.
If you stop taking scheduled meds prescribed for documented diagnosed hypertension then the BP will rise up though perhaps not right away;so do take the med as prescribed.Losartan sometimes works better taken divided in to 2 doses 12 hours apart eg 50mg every 12 hours.Good luck.
