the medication just might not be working for you. everyone's body reacts differently to different meds. call your doctor, explain what's happening, and perhaps ask to switch to something different.

Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, if your blood pressure is not controlled even after taking medicine then you should rule out primary cause of high blood pressure, you should get blood test for renal profile, lipid profile, ECG, n 2D echo. you should change medicine after consulting with your doc. along with it you should take salt restricted diet, start morning walk os isometric exersise.
