Brief Answer:
You need ECG and some work up and treatment

Detailed Answer:
First of all have an ECG done to know if any abnormal or irregular beats. If any abnormalities they need treatment. If it's normal then you need not to worry. If normal but fast heart rate on ECG then you need to have look at Echocardiography and Thyroid function to see any abnormalities.

If everything is fine and if still you have fast rate and high BP then it is needed to be treated with beta blockers, along with anxiety reduction and subsequently it should be possible to withdraw drugs..
