High blood pressure, high systolic pressure after taking metpure xl 25

i have been using metpure xl 25 for the past one year. I was prescribed some other bp medicine before that. Now I am having high systolic pressure and it reads 140-80 which is not the case before as I was in the area of 110-70 in the mornings and 128-80 in the evenings. My weight is 75 kg. Now I have a whooshing sound in my ears-both- while reading in a awkward position or driving . Usually it goes off after the belt is loosened or I take a rest. Im 46 yers old.

Thanks for query.
Just a single reading of 140/80 is not sufficient to change or increase the dose of anti-hypertensives.
If your blood pressure is persistently high then medicines need to be changed or dose of metaprolol needs to be increased.
Continue with moderate exercise and salt restriction.
Hope this helps you.
Thank you.
