Please don't fool yourself that you can catch all of your pressure spikes when you're stressed and reduce them with meditation: it's better to prevent the spikes from happening.

I take hydrochlorothiazide for my blood pressure and it's free with my insurance.
Preventing spikes might be very difficult to do. I live just across the river from lower Manhattan. I can see the World Trade Center from my living room window. Stressful knowing what happened ten years ago.
I just suffered my second DVT in my "good" leg. The first being 10 years ago. Medication is just not doing to do it for me and neither is yoga. I am 64 years old and just grateful these days to wake up in the morning. The meds are mild and keep the blood pressure under control. Thank goodness as my grandmother died from a massive stroke in her early 40's. She was morbidly obese and lived out in the sticks and did not have access to good medical help.
