Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

If you are hypertensive and have been prescribed antihypertensive drugs then you should initiate them. Long term uncontrolled hypertension can lead to damage to the kidney, heart, lungs and eyes among other pathologies. You can consult a psychiatrist for further help to allay your concerns and fears in this regard.

Wishing you best of health
