70 year old male, I take medication for high blood pressure and have just started a new tablet for my high blood pressure

No other symptoms and it seams to be higher in the mornings

Your BP is high but not at the crisis level.

You can drive.

However, I would advise to contact your doctor for modification of doses or changes in medicine.
