Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all this additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,

If you are not having any symptoms, you can now observe. Though systolic pressure is a bit high diastolic is normal. With rest, it may come down.

If you have a headache then you can take Enalapril 5 mg.

Do deep breathing.

In case of chest pain, shortness of breath then visit an emergency room.

Otherwise, see your doctor tomorrow morning for a clinical examination and he may adjust the doses of your medicines.

 

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
