Brief Answer:
Get examined & Investigated

Detailed Answer:
Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You need examination and investigation

It is not wise to take BP medications without proper medical supervision….
Ziblok-25 is Atenolol 25mg – Beta Blocker / The dose is up to 100 mg in a day
It may be doubled – TAKE CARE – it may bring down the heart rate

There are many CLASSES of drugs / There are several drugs in each class
Some are - Calcium Channel Blocker (CCB) / Beta- Blocker / Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) Inhibitor / Diuretic / Angiotensin Receptor Blocker (ARB) / Direct Renin Inhibitor,,,
Each drug has a dose range. /they may be given in different permutation / combination

Generally, we add CCB like Amlodipine 2.5 or 5 mg and watch… / may add a Diuretic later…
Usually the treating doctor chooses a drug depending on associated conditions, contraindications and so on – as an example: if the heart rate is high, if there is ichemia- a beta blocker is the choice. / If there is heart failure, ACEI (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (Ace) Inhibitor) or ARB (Angiotensin Receptor Blocker) / In asthma – CCB / and so on, so forth. There are other factors like local availability, affordability, compliance and so on.
The treating doctor alone could conclude better based on total clinical picture…

Good luck
God bless you
