Side effects of medicne used for High BP

An_243533 posted:
I am taking BP tablets (TENORETIC 100mg), half tablet every day since 2-3 years. I am usually regular with this and my BP is under control and BP reading remains almost in normal range. However if for some reasons I have stopped the medicine, after 2-3 days the BP reading starts going up and within a week it jumps (150-90) or above. Due to this medicine I have some side effects, specially in my SEX life. Is it possible for me to stop using this medicine and follow other alternatives like exercise and diet control etc.
