Could you explain why I shouldn't stop taking Metoprolol for high blood pressure when I feel ok?

In brief: IT IS NOT

HOW YOU FEEL....its what your BLOOD PRESSURE is that counts.
..DO NOT STOP the medication High blood pressure can be CONTROLLED not usually CURED and blood pressure medication NEVER "CURES" high blood pressure! At 19 you might consult with your treating medical provider how an exercise program and conditioning might reduce your BP. Some people can use MEDITATION to reduce BP
