Thanks for this question

I'm Dr. Phil and I'm ready to help

This is a concerningly high blood pressure

Blood pressure goal at your age is 150/90 or less.

I think you don't need to go on statins but you do need to get on some type of BP med

I would use a drug like lisinopril

safe and effective for controlling BP
