Thanks for the query.
Some of the things which help in BP control are salt restriction, weight loss, avoiding alcohol and relaxation techniques.
Also follow up with the physician regularly as you are quite young and need strict BP control.
Use of over the counter medications whose short and long term risks and benefits are unclear like the pill you have mentioned without any supervision is not recommended at all.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
