Brief Answer:
No need to change.

Detailed Answer:
HI

Thanks for posting your query.

Your BP of 140/90 is on Aten or Temsan ct. If it is on Aten then there is no need to change to Temsan Ct as this BP is quite good enough for your age.

Also I need to know are you Diabetic or not ? Because if you are Diabetic then Temsan ct is a better drug than Aten .

Kindly let me know the details asked .

Brief Answer:
BP of 140/90 is fine for your age.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Well in my opinion a BP of 140/90 is acceptable for your age and even if he wanted to reduce it to 120/80 he could have increased Aten dosage.

See I am not telling that Temsan ct is a bad drug, it is a very good drug but since your blood pressure was controlled with Aten there was no need for the change.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarification feel free to ask.
