In brief: Not necessarily

There are various ways to treat high blood pressure, including weight loss, cardiovascular exercise, improved diet including a low salt diet, meditation and medications.
Doing many, or all, of these other treatments may be sufficient to not need blood pressure medications. However, do not stop blood pressure medications unless directed to by your physician, as complications can occur.

In brief: Depends on reason

If you have underlying causes causing HTN which can be reversed by addressing them. Like wt, sleep apnea, excessive alchol, adrenal tumor etc, but if it is genetic and other kidney issues, it may not be reversible.
