Constant high blood pressure. Treatment?

Hi my son is 25 yrs old with consistent blood pressure readings of 159/100 average..sometimes as high as 179/110
He is on several blood pressure meds and they do not help..I have taken him to several doctors including a cardiologist and no one can tell me why or get him meds that help. He is 6'4 and about 340 lbs and unfortunately a smoker..any info or suggestions would be appreciated
