my blood pressure is 174/118 should i go see a doc ( i am already medicated)?

I think you should yes. Your current medication is not working as well as it should, and you are at risk with a diastolic reading like that (bottom reading).

You have got stage 2 hypertension. Diastolic BP is very high compared to systolic BP.
Control your blood pressure in order to avoid heart attack, stroke or kidney failure.
Check the function of your kidney (for microalbuminuria, serum creatinine, blood urea nitrogen), heart (ECG & Echocardiography for left ventricular enlargement/hypertrophy) and retina (for hypertensive retinopathy).
Take 75 mg of aspirin (delayed release) daily in order to prevent heart attack.
Adopt DASH diet.

Your already medicated and it's still that high? Is this a reading from in the morning right when you wake up after you've used the restroom? Because if not it could just be because of a meal or eating something bad.

I would take it next morning and see where it is. If it's still high and your already medicated then the doc needs to tweak your dosage.
