Normal is considered to be 120/80 and normal life activity will cause some fluctuations, so anything slightly lower or higher, such as 125/82 or 110/65 are not considered to be a problem.

However, in your case the 154 on top would be considered high.

Was that just one reading, or has it been consistently showing high over several readings?

Actually, they new normal or "good " range for blood pressure is BELOW 120/80. A perscribed BP med should lower blood pressure shortly after taking it.
