Not necessarily: Stressful situations will often elevate blood pressures. If you are not having symptoms related to blood pressure elevation- such as headaches, cardiac pain or stroke symptoms : sometimes lowering the blood pressure can actually worsen the situation.

Difficult: Most HTN pts require at least 3 different drugs to control hypertension. The guidelines recommend to start with low dose diuretics but it is ok to use calcium channel blockers like amlodipine or beta blockers like metoprolol.( especially if they have coronary disease or atrial fibrillation). Acei's like Lisinopril are also good for CHF and in diabetics. Arbs:diovan or losartan have good profile.

Definitely: Your BP must be no more than 130 (top) and no more than 80 (bottom). 131-139 is prehypertention as well as 81 to 89. >140/90 is hypertension. Your #s are in the hypertensive range and must be addressed immediately. Losing some weight (initial goal is loss of ~7% of the current weight) will help. Reducing salt intake to less than 2.5 grams/day (1/2 of a teaspoon) will help. If no result in 3 months.

I'd go for a medication. Also, doing some bloodwork - checking for diabetes, kidney function/electrolytes would be warranted.
