Thank you for posting a query.

Firstly, your age is in higher range. I can understand the situation when the blood pressure was measured. But, that also indicates a tendency of hypertension. In this age group which is alarming.

What you have to do is to consult with a cardiologist for clinical evaluation, and for oredering required investigation to rule out presence of hypertension. If the clinical evaluation and investigations proves absence of any abnormality then you can stop it. Otherwise, you have to continue it.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.
