I need to know what do you think about this.
I used a 24 hour blood pressure monitor twice,
First time in november and again one month later.
On the first one my BP average was 139/85
The highest reading for systemic pressure was 166
The highest reading for diastolic pressure was 101
The blood tests came back normal.
The doctor prescribed me a beta blocker 5mg
and said i had to come back in a week.
I wasn't happy with that, so i decided to get a second opinion with another doctor in another hospital.
I repeated all again.
My BP average this time was 135/85
The highest reading for systemic pressure was 156
The highest reading for diastolic pressure was 99
Blood tests came back normal.
No kidney or heart damages.
The echocardiography came back normal
Everything's fine besides the BP.
So, the second doctor prescribed me Candersartan 8mg and said i have to go back in 3 months.
I am very confused because i am only 27 (man) and some people say that i don't need medication, just exercise and make some lifestyle changes.
I don't smoke -for the record.
What do you guys things?
Even though my BP average is pretty low, some times in a day can raise above 155 and that's why i am worried.
Today i took my sixth dosis of Candersartan.
The doctor said 8mg is not a big deal and i just have to avoid greasy and salty food.
Should i try natural?
I am lost.
*thanks for reading.
And English isn't my first language, so sorry for the bad grammar. I did my best.

It may also depend on where you live and your Drs levels for bp.
I am 6'0 (182 cms) / 158 pounds
First time i got 136/83
Second time 132/86
Are you under under stress at present? Did any of your family have high BP? Why is your BP high at times.? Is there any need for you to start taking medication now?
My mother got HBP after my grandfather's death. But she told me it's nothing really serious.
I don't know why it high at times.
I don't know if really need it. That's why i came here, because you have experience.
My health's good un general. The only problem is the blood pressure.
most of us are of the same opinion, exercise more, look after you health, do not worry and do not take BP medicines at this stage.
