Hi and welcome to question doctors.com hypertension in this age is usually secondary hypertension so there must be a reason for your hypertension you have to check your thyroid function and then get an ultrasound for renal arteries also if you stay in front of the computer long time and you don’t get enough sleep then the cause may be increased cortisol hormone which also will need to be assessed

If you mean loprin 75mg .it is used as analgesic and can be given at any age.
I never heard of lophrin .
You cholesterol is pretty good.
You have to find the cause of hypertension with further investigations.
