No: Your BP is borderline high. At this time lifestyle change is more effective than taking medications. In addition to your exercise, suggest to keep your bmi below 24. Reduce your salt intake to 2-3gm a day. Eat more fruits and vegetables. If you have not seen a doctor i encourage you to see an internist for a complete physical examination.
