Diabetic. Having high blood pressure while waking up. Prescribed sinus infection medicine. What is the problem?

My Dad woke up this am and his blood pressure was 160/100 and he was very pale - he did go to the dr and they could not find his veins in his arm - like they were sunken - the dr prescribed a sinus infection medicine = I am very doubtful of this - he is diabetic and very obese - 350 lbs at 6 2 - could this be a sign of something more serious like a possible heart attack or stroke?

The vein could not be found because of obesity and it has nothing to do anything with heart attack or must have correctly prescribed the sinus infection medicine.There should not be any doubt regarding the judgement ofbthe doctor.
Make it a point to keep his blood pressure below 120/80.
Keep his blood sugar normal and ask him to control his weight.
