High & Low Blood Pressure board

My husband is on 10 mg. of lotrel (well the generic brand of it anyway) and this past week his blood pressure has went up to around 150+ over 98-104. It has been in the normal range before this week. He has been on this med for a couple of years and also takes cholesterol meds and prilosec everyday. Now he is about 100lbs overweight but he has been that way for several years. I have finally convinced him to go to his dr. if I can get him in tomorrow. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why this is happening? Any home remedies for a quick fix until we get to the dr.? Any help would be much appreciated as I am very worried about him. Thank you :)
