How long should someone wait to go on high BP ?

How long should someone wait to go on high blood pressure meds if they are having a reading of 184/111? ?
This happened to my friend yesterday. We just checked it at kmart on a machine. Later that night it was over 200/162. What is wrong with the bottom number?? 200 is high but a bottom number of 162? Also his pulse was over 102
