In brief: Improve lifestyle

A person with mild high blood pressure and on one medication might be able to get off the medication.
He can work with his doctor to find a proper diet and an ideal weight. A long-term exercise program such as distance running, swimming, and biking can lower baseline blood pressure and heart rate. He should be happy, without anger or anxiety problems. Add a little luck and he may get off medicine.
