Depends: What is your blood pressure? How much do you weigh? Is the high blood pressure due to a known cause or primary? If you have garden variety hypertension, it would help to lose weight, reduce salt intake, and exercise. If that does not bring it to normal, then your doctor can prescribe medications.
