Thanks for your query.
You are quite young. Thus your blood pressure needs to be well controlled all the time to prevent long term complications. Cutting down on the salty foods and weight reduction will help get your blood pressure under control.
In terms of the medications it's always advisable to change the pills under the close supervision of a physician. He can monitor your BP and watch for side effects with new medications.
Good luck.
