Brief Answer:
You can take amlodipine 5 Mg.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting Healthcaremagic!
I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns.
Check your blood pressure and confirm whether it is on higher side or not. If it is on high side you can try relaxation techniques like taking a deep breath and slowly releasing the inspired air. If it’s on very high(more than 180) take a single tablet of amlodipine 5 Mg and rush to your doctor.
Avoid unwanted stress and anxiety. Quit smoking do Do regular exercises.
Wishing you good health.
Thanks
