Hello ,
Welcome to Health care Magic,
This is not unusual for patients of High BP, but you must learn from your mistake, as you are relatively young and most of the time high BP may be without symptoms.
The drug advised to you is good just take it regularly and have periodic check up on regular interval.
You must understand it is patho physiological condition which may not be cured but can almost always controlled.
Take care of your diet reduce salt
Take regular exercise walking 3-4 km/day .
Hope you will benefit from this information.
Good Luck.
