Hi maurice ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
What is your age will be the first question? If you are above 45 rs and you have BP of 190/100 then it is hypertension for which your doctor has rightly prescribed Amlopress 5 which is Amlodipine a anti-hypertensive so it will control your BP without any problems.The one thing you should do is to get the BP checked daily for at least a week after starting the medicine there after you can check it weekly or in 15 days as per your convenience and don't worry high BP is most of the time an accidental discovery and is diagnosed when you go in for a routine check up or some other medical problems.
Take care.
