Are medical doctors allowed to arbitrally remove someone from necessary meds? Series of problems occurred too many to list here, that prevented going to hospital for blood work. Now physician of 10 years has refused to give perscriptions for high blood pressure and diabetic test strips. Is this a legal thing that any physcian can do or is it just a lack of ethics. Been on high blood pressure pills for over 10 years and no side effects was ever noticed.

This is going to sound random, but there isn't much in order to make an educated opinion on your case....

"prevented going to hospital for blood work"

How are you on any prescription medicines if you haven't got up to date blood work done?
That is very important, or the medications that you are/were on, could cause severe medical problems, that are not physically felt, until it's too late.

Get your bloodwork done.

Diabetic test strips should be without prescription, but medication is different.

As the poster above me said, it's necessarry to get new blood work done. It's always a good idea to get bloodwork done often anyway to see if you have any bad ailments going on behind the scenes. You could have blood cancer and not even know it. I'm kind of angered about the medical system of the United States myself, but I think I will go off and make my own topic about it.

Get used to being denied medical care as we slide into socialized medicine and slim budgets.

I was under the impression that once you have been on blood pressure medicine, you can't come off it as it WILL make your blood pressure spike. I may be wrong, but I remember my doctor telling me this a few years back.

I was on blood pressure meds for 2 years, lost weight, drank very little alcohol, walk/excercise daily, and watch my diet. I have been off the med for 2 years now and from time to time check my blood pressure amd it has been good. My experience has been, get healthy and you can say goodbye to the meds.

I thought so too but apparently its wrong advise probably to help the pharmaceuticals so they can keep getting rich. I wouldn't advise it for everyone though, so far knock wood nothing like what you've said has happened.
