User avatar Hi Happyhappy,

Most likely it is fine to take your blood pressure medicine before a stress test. Usually, if a medicine needs to be stopped they would have told you at the time that the test was scheduled. However, if there is a contact number for your doctor to contact him ahead of time just to be sure this would be best since there are a few medicines that should be stopped ahead of time.

Best wishes.
