Hello sir, thank you for that elaborate history its appreciated. You seem to be have Essential Hyper tension since there is no identifiable pathology with any other systems of your body. Well as your doctor would have told you ALPROX is an anxiolytic and sedative, the lesser taken the better since its habit forming drug and has side effects.Considering your other parameters, which are within the normal range we recommend you to take up yoga & meditation
. If performed under proper guidance will help you reduce your blood pressure and your anxiety
, hence reducing your intake of the tablets.Lack of activity and exercise can also cause sleeplessness
in a previously active person.That will take its time since effects are seen only after 3 months of regular exercise.But do not start any exercise program without consulting a physician. You may need an exercise stress test
at this age before starting exercise since you have high blood pressure
. As you mentioned sound sleep should reduce the blood pressure since your entire system gets the rest. You could see a psychiatrist
as they can find out the underlying cause for lack of sleep which most often goes unnoticed. A Sleep hygiene
is to be followed which is explained by Specialist. Thorough history to the Psychiatrist will help.Its is better to observe the sleep, timings, patterns for one week before consultation for better explanation.
