I’ve just been prescribed Ramipril for high blood pressure?

I’ve just been prescribed Ramipril for high blood pressure based on the fact that I’ve had high BP for a couple of weeks of checking. He says it’s just something that happens as we get older – I’m 47.

I have been regularly taking Phenylephrine for blocked sinuses and related tension headaches, it’s the only over the counter medicine I’ve found to work. But research has shown me that this could be the cause on my high BP, along with Naproxen which I use for my stiff back, due to a fracture many years ago.

Is it more likely that if I stop the medicines my BP will normalise rather than treating a symptom of my over-medication… or is my BP likely unrelated to my meds and due to age as my GP suggests?

Many thanks,
