Hi... BP of 150/110mmHg is still a little high.. But there may be a few other factors like anxiety and stress that may have contributed to increasing the BP readings now..  Take the medication regularly, dietary modification, and moderate physical exercises should also help in controlling BP... Recheck BP after a few days and if your BP persists to be on higher side you may need adjustment of the medications...
