What us your age and since when are you having this? Get your thyroid profile, cbc, blood sugar fasting checked from some lab. In the meanwhile follow this 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U should eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5.

This medicine is multivitamine and cyproheptadine which has got many side effects. This is not supposed to be very safe and is banned in many countries. Brown mucus may be due to vitamin content. Abstain it for 10-15 days and confirm whether color is due to medicine.

Control salt, keep a diary recording bp every week or so. Consult physician - internal medicine for proper investigations for bp. Some appropriate medication like amlovas or some other may have to be started to reduce both readings by another 10-15. Follow up and periodical review with same physicain is necessary healthy life style, avoiding oil, smoking, alcohol etc will help. Yoga and meditation will be beneficial.
