"As" per your clinical history is concerned you are taking right medication so rule out other pathological aspects you need a clinical examination as well as few investigations like (CBC with differential, T3.T4, TSH,ECG and ECHO).You need dose adjustment if these reports comes normal. Do follow lifestyle modifications like this -
1) Eat healthy foods. Eat a healthy diet. Try the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. 2) Maintain a healthy weight. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. If you're overweight, losing even 3 kilograms can lower your blood pressure.
Increase physical activity. Regular physical activity can help lower your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems and keep your weight under control.
3) Limit alcohol and Don't smoke. 4) Manage stress. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too.
Hope that helps.
