In brief: Medication, exercise
You and your doctor should talk about the best way to control high blood pressure.
Whether you need to go on medication will depend on how high your blood pressure is and your risk factors for heart disease and stroke. Many people need more than one drug to control high blood pressure. Following the dash diet and getting at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise 5 days a week usually help as well.
