Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern.

Check your B.P weekly for 2 months and note the readings. if persistent elevation exist, low dose thiazide diuretics and/or ARBs can be started. Take 1 mg lorazepam before going to sleep, it could be accumulated stress



Let me know if you have any query

wishing you best of health

Thanks
