I'm taking one TELMA 20 mg daily for the past two years for my high BP without stopping until now. I want to know whether too long taking this medicine will cause any other health problems to me.

No. The medicine you are taking is protective. It not only reduces your bp, but has other cardio protective actions as well.

In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. Take sarpgandha vati twice a day. Yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. Avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.
