Instead of medication, first try lifestyle measures like - daily exercising for 40-45 mins, avoiding stimulants like caffeine and decreasing foods with high salt intake like pickles, chips, chutneys etc (salt added during cooking is fine) and quitting smoking (in case you smoke) If after 6-8 weeks of these measures your BP is still high, you will need medications in addition to these lifestyle measures.
