No, bxbsmommy is right. Everyone's BP should be around 120/80. My doctors have always told me that the bottom number is the one to pay the most attention to. That one should stay below 80. If it jumps up into the 80's occasionally that's OK, but it shouldn't go over 90. You can get a cuff and check yourself at home to keep track of how you're doing. I bought one online for about $40, it's automatic and works great.
Also make sure you take your meds at the same time every day. I was having trouble because I wasn't always taking mine at the same time. Now I'm really careful and mine's been great.
