Do you take medication to treat your high blood pressure?

I am taking Olmeglare 40/5 since last 15 days. Previous blood pressure was 180/100 now it is 130/80.

I"ve just started monitoring and charting my blood pressure. Most of the time my systolic side is between 140 and 150. The bad news is my diastolic side is sometimes over 110. I"m going to be seeing the doctor Tuesday, the 27th of May 2014. I had a blood workup done and faxed over to my cardiologist, and I will show him all the charting and monitoring I"ve been doing on my own.
