Taking anti-hypertension medications ASAP is still the best way to do so. There are three categories of anti-hypertensive drugs. ACE inhibitors like Amlodipine, Captopril and Enalapril prevents the angiotensin I to become angiotensin II which causes the constriction of blood vessels therefor increasing the blood pressure.

Beta-blockers like Propanolol, Metoprolol and Nadolol are not just used for decreasing blood pressure it also helps to manage a lot of heart related diseases. While the last is the Calcium channel blocker like Diltiazem, Nicardipine and Nifedipine, it acts as a coronary vascular smooth muscle relaxant and it also dilates the veins causing a decreased blood pressure.

Remember that this anti-hypertensive drugs are not over-the-counter drugs, they should always be prescribed by your doctor.
