my father is 60 years old tonight his blood pressure is 169/80 butvhe has blood pressure problem and he takes medicin what should we do now to lower it?
His goal blood pressure should be systolic (upper number) below 150; if he has not taken his medications today then he should; if he has, then he may need those to be adjusted by the prescribing physician if the numbers keep on being high several days in a row when on medications faithfully.
