My husband 49 has been taking Bystolic 5mg (for a week) and Altace 10 mg (for years). His blood pressure is
145/93 about the same as before he started taking his new medication Bystolic. Should we contact his physician now? Or should we give it more time?

wait for a while mild hypertensive

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking
Waiting for a little while longer would be fine.if not helpful then change of medicine or shuffling of dose would be considered. Meanwhile modify diet and lifestyle regular exercise , lipid lowering , no trans or saturated fats maximum salt intake of no more than 2 gm a day.your husband is mildly hypertensive .He will be fine. Let's wait a bit and give the medications some time.
I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and don't forget to close the discussion please.
May the odds be ever in your favour.
