High & Low Blood Pressure board

To get the most likely "real bp reading", does one merely average the results when there are discrepancies, or do you drop the high and or low and go with the median? For example, at 8 a.m. have three readings, about 3 minutes apart-- 147/78; 138/70; and 131/75. Just took another, and it was 145/74.

So my take is that I'm at the high-end of the "pre-hypertension" range and need to be concerned. I'm already using 40 mg of lisinopril (no noticeable side effects).
