Diagnosed with high BP and anxiety, prescribed Prolonet AM 5o. For long should the medicines be taken?

Recently my wife (age 31) was admitted in hospital and was diagnosed anxiety and High BP (180/110). Doctor Prescribed Myoprol XL 50 tablets one in the morning. She took this tablet for 15 days. And when we went again to doctor the BP was like 140/100 so he changed the drugs called Prolomet AM 50. Now she is taking this from past 1 month and her BP is under control. Mornings when she wakes up at around 6:30 am her BP is 115/85 and in the evening at around 6 pm its 103 / 74. So should she take that tablet in the morning or in the night. And how many days or months she has to continue this tablets?
