Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi and thanks for query,
If the blood pressure is still high after three hours of taking medication you need to visit ER for this as it needs monitoring and you might need Intravenous medication to lower this down. This much high blood pressure can be dangerous so to avoid complications go to emergency.
Let me know if you have further questions.

another option is to call up your primary care doctor and let them know what your blood pressure is if you are not having any symptoms
your doctor could increase your blood pressure medication for you over the phone or call in new blood pressure medication for you
have you tried to call up your doctor over the weekend?
are you having any symptoms like headaches? dizziness?
I would respectfully ***** ***** the second expert's advice. Your blood pressure reading is high and these readings can cause end organ damage without any symptoms.
This is obviously not your routine reading that is why you have shown concern. So, it is best to be on the safe side and avoid complications. Going to the Urgent Care or the ER is the best course of action.
