I am having gh blood pressure issues, currently under GP

Customer Question

I am having high blood pressure issues, currently under GP tryng different pills to stabilise. GP Not available tonight. BP reading has shot up to 200/103 tonight. I take bendroflumethiazide 2.5 mg, bisoprol fumarate 5mg, candesatrn cilexitil 16mg and Lercanidipine Hcl 10mg , all in the morning. Until recently I took doxazosin 2mg in the evening with good results but GP moved me to lercanidine beause I was getting urine infection.
In view of the very high readings tonight I want to take a pill before going to bed. Which one Should I take

Se can not treat you.

And, this degree of blood pressure is dangerous, a hypertensive urgency.

Go to A&E.

You need to be checked.

This can turn into an emergency, and you should be monitored initially.
