In brief: Please see doc
Please take your mother to the doctor - controlling her blood pressure at her age can help keep her healthy and happy (lowers the risk of stroke and heart attack).
There are many different types of blood pressure medicines we can use... Working with her doctor, she could find one that causes her less side effects like constipation.
