Hello, according to your height is your weight is about normal, it should be around 63 kgs. If you are not a regular hypertension patient then there is no need to take these medications. Your bp shoots only when you are tensed or angry. Yes this is symptom of hypertension but don't worry this manageable with few life style changes. Drink plenty of liquids and cut down your fat, salt and sugar intake. Go for a morning walk daily at least for 30 minute. Take a sound sleep and try to avoid anger. Home remedies to control high bp:-1. Bananas are one fruit that people with high blood pressure can eat regularly to control it. Bananas are a rich source of potassium, which lessens the effect of sodium. So, try to eat one or two bananas daily. Along with bananas, you can try dried apricots, raisins, orange juice, spinach, baked sweet potatoes. 2. Eat one or two crushed garlic cloves daily. You can simply crush them with your hands. Crushing garlic cloves creates hydrogen sulfide, a compound that promotes good blood flow, removes gas and reduces the pressure on the heart. If you do not like eating raw garlic or if it causes a burning sensation, then take it along with a cup of milk. You can also mix five or six drops of garlic juice in four teaspoons of water and take it twice a day. **in case you need medication then take rauvolfia 1x, 2 tabs daily morning empty stomach. This homoeopathic medicine will not cause any harm/side effects. Thanks.
