Your blood pressure is very high. You are in a hypertensive emergency. You should go to the hospital for treatment immediately. Your emergency doctor may use nitroglycerin or sodium nitroprusside to control your blood pressure.

You must monitor your blood pressure regularly. You can improve your lifestyle by eating a low-salt diet, stopping smoking and restricting alcohol, and exercising moderately. In the meantime, if your blood pressure is always high, you should adjust your antihypertensive drugs which should be administered under the direction of a cardiologist.

Is your renal function intact? If there is such a high blood pressure value under the premise of complete renal function, you need to call 9-1-1 immediately and go to the emergency department.
