Hello, High blood pressure should always be treated by Lifestyle modification first. Means if you reduce your body fat, if you eat proper fruits and vegetables, plus reduce your stress level and do some yoga, automatically blood pressure becomes normal. So, try it out instead of piling on medicines.

It is not necessary that hypertension will be controlled by single drug in all patients. In fact most patients of hypertension require 2 or more drugs to control bp. Consult your doctor and he will adjust the dose and medicine as per your body requirements. Donot worry combinations are available so it's not necessary that your tablet number will increase.

These are the readings at home. I've taken few medicines like telma H, hydrazide, himalaya Abana for short span of time (3-4 months) in the last 5 years. I'm now taking himalaya Abana daily in the morning and hyrdazide once in a while (10 days) whenever my BP is above 145/95. I've mild anxiety problem. I'm taking measures to control my BP e.g. Less salt intake, walk, 6-7 hrs sleep. Is it normal if my BP stays between 130/85 - 142/92 with Abana only, or should I start any other medicine? Also, any is there any long term side effects of Abana medicine?

Losartan is anti hypertensive so if given will reduce the bp which can be risky in person with normal bp.

Ask your Dr. to stop night dose. Take morning dose early. Measure BP only once every month on fixed date after resting for ten minutes. If BP below 110, morning dose can be reduced after few months.
