Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, you are on anti-hypertensives and lipid lowering medications. As your blood pressure is still not under control, your medicines might need to be changed or the dose might have to be increased. As we have not examined you and we don't know your past medical history, it would not be appropriate for us to advice you about the medicines. What we would like you to know is that sometimes some medicines are not effective in some individuals. When the medicine is changed, they respond immediately. Therefore, we would recommend you to get in touch with your Doctor and consult him about this. Hope this helps.
