Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I am sorry for your symptoms.
If your blood pressure is still 200/100, I would suggest to go to hospital.
The level is quite high.
The risk of stroke, infarct is increased at this level.
You will need monitoring of blood pressure with addition of other medicines.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your good health..
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
