Thanks for writing in.
As per your details, there is no significant past history.
So during medical, hypertension was detected. It can be due to stress or anxiety of medical; you blood pressure would have gone up.

Until and unless blood pressure is raised on three different occasions, medications will not be started.

I hope you done it same way and then your physician has started the medicine.
Ramipril is good enough to control as blood pressure is 140 mm/Hg.

But every company has it's policies to recruit, decision completely depends on company's policy.

But If it is white coat hypertension [hypertension only during stress/ anxiety in hospitals]; I do not think it will be a problem.

I hope I have answered your query. In case of any doubt, I shall be happy to help you.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
