My grandma has to take her pill for her high blood pressure. But when she sees that her pressure is good she does not take her pill. Is that dangerous?

In brief: Medication

She needs to take her meds as prescribed.
The blood pressure meds are not typically prescribed to be used intermittently. These meds are to be taken on a regular basis.
