High Blood Pressure: Medication is not what i first turn to. Diet, exercise, and stress management first. However, if genetically you are programmed to have high blood pressure with readings consistently above 140/90, there are safe medications that might be helpful. Make sure your doctor discusses all the options and doesn't bully you into anything with which you feel uncomfortable.
