Are you suppose to still take high blood pressure medicine if your blood pressure is 117/73 and 109/74 thanks?

In brief: Yes, but...

Do not abruptly discontinue drugs for hypertension although it is possible to slowly adjust down their dosage in conjunction with lifestyle modification.
So, keeping on taking anti-hypertensives until re-evaluated by your doctor.
