Yes, my BP (although not high enough to require any medication) has reduced over my CPAP journey (10 mths or so).

Wayne, that's an amazing drop in BP - well done.

My BP has dropped considerably since I've been using CPAP therapy and I will ask my GP whether I should reduce my medication as it's now quite a bit below the norm.
