I am on high blood pressure meds. At rest is 105/70. Recently I notice I had pressures around 165/85 after moderate exercise. It return to normal range after 10 minutes. Is the 165 to 175 over 80 to 90 higher then is should be??/

Blood pressure normally rises on exercise. And not raising is a bad sign.

During stress test it is allowed to get much higher before they will stop the test.

Now, I am not a medical professional and don't know how much of a rise is normal. Nor do I have any way of telling how hard your "moderate" exercise or how long.

Also the amount of BP rise will vary with the type of exercise.

At your next regular doctors appointment discuss this with him.
