I think my htn is going to be treated with medicine. I know there are a few classes of anti htns meds. I'm an anxious person. Which type would be best?

In brief: Complicated question

When your physician decides on a medication for hypertension, he or she will look at many things before choosing the medication.
Things to consider include: age, race, heart condition, diabetes, other medical conditions, family history, other medications, etc.

In brief: Discuss with FP

Because there are many classes of meds used for htn, it's best to discuss your case with your fp so the best drug can be chosen to lessen the chance of side effects or to prevent making other medical conditions worse.
