Getting medicine in this way is not safe. First of all get confirmed if you have b.P. Secondly go to a Good General Physician or a Cardiologist for check up and take medicine as per his advise only. Do not take any medication on hearsay from anyone. It will kill you. Thirdly, Reduce Salt (Sodium less) in your food. If you are above 35-40 reduce intake of Oil and fat. Go for walking in the mornings at least for 30-45 minutes. This will reduce your B.P. without medicine and make you healthy.
