In brief: Lifestyle & medicine
See your doctor! you need to have a doctor evaluate your blood pressure first.
Stop smoking, increase exercise (starting with what you are healthy enough to do), and follow your doctor's instructions with regards to the above and the prescribed medication. Controlling blood pressure is one of the smartest things you can do to improve your health.
