Suggest treatment for hypertension

27 year old male with hypertension was not taking his prescribed medicine and his blood pressure was found to be 175/120.. Now he is refilling his prescription and has taken his medication. Should he be in the ER or continue to monitor his BP at home while starting his meds.
