In brief: Change your diet

You are close to max dose of this drug which means your provider will likely discuss adding a second one.
One way to bring your numbers down is to significantly limit the number of carbs you consume. I have patients drink nothing but water and avoid fruit, bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, and usual junk food for 6 weeks. Once they see the way their body responds to carbs we slowly add some back in.
