billh99 responded:
Ideal BP is 115/75. Above 120/80 is pre-hypertension, Risk of strokes and heart disease starts above that. But typically treatment for it is not started until 140/90.

There are many generic BP meds that are available from WalMart for $10/90 days. A number of other pharmacies also have similar lists of meds.

You can go to a go to a walk in clinic for a nominal fee. Many Walgreens and CVS stores have them.

And there are free/reduced charge community clinics.

Other things that you can do is to lose weight if needed. And do regular aerobic exercise and some strength exercises.

And eat a healthy diet and specially watch the sodium (high in prepared and restaurant food) and eat food high in potassium.
