1 doctor agrees
In brief: It depends...
Certain heart meds can cause drops in blood pressure with prolonged sitting/laying.
Before any traveling, you should review your meds schedule with your doctor or cardiologist.

In brief: Heart medications
As you didn't give any more information one can't answer accurately what you ask.
In general if you need medications you should take them, flying notwithstanding. Discuss with your doctor for instructions which come from one who knows you and your medical state.
