I am 41 , Height is 5.7, Weight is 82.5 i am having BP consistently showing 152/100 for last one year even though i don't have any other problem apart from BP , i am also taking BP Tablet Nicardia 10mg one time on night if i take one more dose i am getting headache Please suggest any medical advice to lower my BP.

Ans: BP target is < 130/80 for most patients, Nicardia is not the best first line antihypertensive medication. If you are getting side effects then reconfirm whether you have high BP with a test called ABPM. and if its high then consult a good cardiologist who should be prescribing you a good first line antihypertensive agent
