Brief Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM

Detailed Answer:
Yes, this is absolutely optimal blood pressure and normal pulse and it means that Tenoretic is working well for you,and you should stay on this antihypertensive therapy. If BP raises above 145/90 then you should change medicine. In every case, continue with healthy diet and regulate body weight,and avoid salty food. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask.
