Always take low salt diet walk for 30 min in fresh air review your medications with the doctor every 3-4 months get the BP checks atleast once a month See that the BP should be less than 140/90 as your BP is high now immediately rush to a doctor you need to get the review of medications i think the dose is not exact to you
