This is Dr. David

it sounds like you are on a quite a bit of high blood pressure medication.

it looks like your blood pressure is coming down at this point.

anxiety and worry can increase your blood pressure.

trying to relax and take deep breaths can help you continue to lower your blood pressure.

avoiding excessive salt and processed foods in your diet can help lower your blood pressure.

have you tried meditation and deep breathing exercises? these can help you bring down your blood pressure.
