Welcome to ehealthforum

Uncontrolled Hypertension is a serious problem and should not be ignored as it can lead to complications of various other organs like kidney,heart,damage of arteries,stroke,eye problems etc.
You should go to the emergency immediately as it has to be controlled and you need continous monitoring.After completely evaluating and controlling the Blood pressure your medications are to be adjusted accordingly to your lifestyle.Please visit an ER soon.

Take Care!
