Hypertension

My sister had a very severe nose bleed which required packing at the hospital.  She discovered her BP was very high and started medication.  Her BP is 160/110.  How long does it typically take for medictions to work?  She is so frightened of having another nose bleed episode or worse.

Yes this happens with alot of people , who discover or have High Blood Pressure..
the vains in the nose are very tender and small, thus they can break easy. when b.p gets too high , this can happen !  she went to the best place for help - Hospital !!
as far as b.p meds working ,it can sometimes depend on a persons size and waight -
but for the most part, Iv found it takes about 45mins to 1hour max  for the meds to work
most people can feel the meds working inside them. she will know when they work !
it also depends what type of medication shes on, beta blocker -ace inhibbitor, cal channel blocker ???  some will work faster than others or slower.
but belive me, she will know when they are working !  

once shes on the medication - if the b.p drops down, she shouldnt have anymore problems with the nose.  im sure she has a appointment with a Doctor , so she can get her medications adjusted to proper dose.

well hope it goes well , and wish her the best !
nomoe ..
