Depends : Many people with white coat hypertension, do have hypertension and need some form of therapy.I usually recommend that before an appointment, the patient take about 20 blood pressure values and heart rates at different times of the day and record it on paper.then show these values to your doctor and they may prescribe either anti hypertensive or anti anxiety medicine or techniques to relieve stress
