Re: When would it be time accept you have high BP and need medication?

My situation is a little different, but I made my decision when microalbumin started showing up in my urine. My blood pressure wasn't even particularly high, but I decided that I wanted to keep my kidneys. I take a BP pill every day and the kidney problem seems to have reversed itself. I would not have been able to do this without medication, so I just resigned myself to a lifetime of these pills.
