Hi
Usually it will take 2- 3 weeks to establish the proper action of anti hypertensive drugs after there initiation.
Mean while you should also do dietary modifications like reducing salt and saturated fat in diet. If blood pressure is still on higher side you may need dose escalation of drugs.

Thank you
