Thanks for posting your query

Your Blood pressure reading are too high and if constantly elevated can cause different issues as heart problems,stroke,angina.Since you are on BP.

Considering your age and previous history I would request you to kindly rush to the Emergency room so that appropriate treatment can be started soon and also you are under observation.

Consider taking someone along with you and do not drive.

Hope this answers your query.I will be available for follow up in case of any doubt.

I have been on hormone replacement for over 30 years and am taking minimum dose which has been approved by my internist.

Is it totally necessary for me to go to emergency room or is there anything I can do to bring down the bp. Can I wait till tomorrow morning to see if it goes down and then call my doctor?

Would a sleeping pill such as ambien 5 mg. Or a Xanax low dose which I just got a prescription fo help me to lower bp?

Thanks for the follow up

Such high Blood Pressure cannot be brought down by yourself at home.

Since you are already on oral medications to lower down the readings you might require injectable preparations along with constant monitoring.

I will again advise to go to Emergency now as raised BP can cause other problems.Also it is not advisable to self medicate yourself.

Wishing you Good Health!
