Ok controlling of blood pressure look very simple but its not easy
if the patient had BP 200mmhg it can lead to many worst complication including brain haemorrhage
What i suggest is to maintain a diary of BPmonitoring and buy an digital sphygmomanometer(BP APPRATUS)

u can start. Tab amlovas 5mg at morning
then msasure in evening if it is more than 140mmhg systolic u can repeat the dose

But with this issue u shoul also try to find out the other changes in body related to high BP
2d echo-surely u will find here grade 1diastolic dysfunction
Renal function test-derrange of rft also cause high BP
