Do I need to finish my maintenance medication?

Blood pressure pills and other maintenance medications

If you are on "maintenance " medications, in other words, medications that you'll need to take for the rest of your life, you should take them daily without interruption unless instructed otherwise by your physician. Be sure to order your refills well enough in advance so that you do not run out of pills. A good rule of thumb is to order a refill when you have a weeks worth left of pills.
