Dear patient,

Thanks for your concerns. It seems that most of your problems may be arising from non-ideal control of your blood pressure by the description of symptoms and the numbers you share with us; many times, or probably I should say most of the time, a single medication can not control the blood pressure adequately, which for your should be consistently below 140/80; so my recommendation would be to visit either an internist or a cardiologist, who can decide which second medicine is best for you and monitor response.

Yours truly,
