Preferred treatment methods for blood pressure include lifestyle modifications and medications. First, the doctor will prescribe a diet and exercise regimen. If these attempts to control symptoms are unsuccessful, the doctor will prescribe medications. The doctor will need to monitor blood pressure regularly and may ask you to monitor blood pressure through a home testing kit. Reducing stress and eating a well balanced diet that is low in saturated fat and sodium can help prevent problems with high blood pressure.

That may make it difficult to stay on medication, especially if high blood pressure never caused any symptoms before. An estimated 70% of men who have side effects from high blood pressure medicine stop taking it.
