In brief: Lifestyle, then drug
High blood pressure rarely is genetic or secondary to some structural or hormonal cause.
Fixing the cause ameliorates the problem. More commonly, overweight and dietary sodium excess are active contributors, so weight loss, exercise, diet changes (see dash diet) can control the BP satisfactorily. Failing lifestyle changes, medications (often multiple) may be needed, tailored by your doctor.
