Brief Answer: You blood pressure numbers are fine.. Detailed Answer: Hi, Your blood pressure seems to be fine. Reading under 140/90 is accepted as normal by most doctors. However you can practice healthy lifestyle to make sure the readings remain under this limit or close to 120/80mmHg. You don't need medicines for now. Hope this answers your question. Regards
