you are already having high blood pressure from a long time. the patient having high blood pressure have increased threshold level for blood pressure which means that their normal levels windows is increase from 120/80 to 160/90. this level is considered normal for chronic hypertensive patients. therefore the blood pressure you had the first time was normal for you. after the change of medications the value got is high especially the diastolic blood pressure i.e. 110. therefore i would suggest you to continue your old medications for hypertension
thanks with regards
