Unlike pain or allergy pills (for example,) hbp drugs usually take time to become fully effective. And it's not just the medication but also the lifestyle that'll dictate how soon full effect will be realized. If you smoke, drink, not exercise, eat lots of food with sodium, etc., then it'll take longer for the drugs to help you get better. It took me around three-four weeks before I started feeling better more consistently.
Good luck, be patient and don't be surprised if you feel bad for a little bit before you feel better. These types of treatment take time.
