Suggest treatment for high BP along with tiredness

My wife is a healthy female age 51 who just went to the doctor today to let him know she had been feeling tired a lot more than usual. He took her blood pressure and it was 184/90 she normally has a pressure of 110/70. She said doctor didn't seem overly concerned since she told him that the high number was unusual. He prescribed Paxil and told her to not worry. Should we worry or not.
